Written by best-selling author Janet Burroway, Imaginative Writing discusses the elements of craft-image, voice, character, setting, and story-from a multigenre perspective. This popular introduction to creative writing explores the craft common to all forms of imaginative writing before individually examining creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and drama. Compelling readings from renowned writers illustrate the chapter topics. Unique "Try This" exercises-updated and expanded for this second edition-help students develop specific writing skills, while new "Working Toward a Draft" exercises encourage students to think ahead about the direction of their work. This second edition also provides an increased emphasis on creative nonfiction as a broader representation of the essay form, with special attention to memoir and the personal essay. Book jacket.
