Back to Creative Writing School

by Bridget Whelan

Whether you want to be a bestselling novelist, write a memoir that persuades your family that you weren’t born a parent, or are a student thinking of embarking on a writing course Back to Creative Writing School offers practical inspiration. It encourages writers and would-be writers to play with language, write with their senses and create three dimensional characters that walk off the page.

Written with the warmth and gentle humour that marks Bridget Whelan’s creative writing classes, her guide includes exercises in horror and magic realism, description and prose poetry, dialogue and story development and even enters into the difficult territory of editing your own writing.

This is a book that builds confidence. Some exercises are designed to turn an idle 10 minutes into a productive literary workout while others have the guts and energy to unlock the writer within and produce novel length ideas .

The Author

With a background in journalism, Bridget became a lecturer in non-fiction at Goldsmiths College – the leading creative university of the UK – just two years after graduating from the MA creative writing programme. She now teaches at many locations in south east England, including City Lit, the largest adult education centre in Europe. She has also been a guest writer in schools and Writer in Residence at Brighton Unemployed Centre, an inspiring community centre that has been serving the unemployed and low waged for over 30 years.

Her own writing career was launched when she won first prize in an international short story competition and she was granted an Arts Council bursary to complete A Good Confession, a novel set in 1960s Ireland and London described by newspaper columnist Miriam Stoppard as “unputdownable”.

You can meet Bridget online at her blog for writers and readers http://bridgetwhelan.com/

The Opening Line

by Karl Wiggins

You know, this book is only 11,000 words, so I’m loathe to call it a book at all, even if some writers publish ‘books’ of just 4000 words or less, but I truly believe that all writers (and most readers for that matter) should read this piece, and you can impart all essential information in just a few short words, then why drag it out?

I’m absolutely convinced that The Opening Line of a book or short story (or song or newspaper article or business report or whatever) is possibly the most important line â?¦.. and thus the hardest to write.

So I’ve researched the Opening Lines of almost 200 books, finishing with the classics. Some are pure poetry, drawing the reader in, enticing him to read the next line and to keep turning the page. Others are absolutely terrible and appear to be nothing more than a cop-out.

Anyone charging good money for 11,000 words may well be ripping people off, but just take a look at the price above, it’s less than a quid!

What do you have to lose?



Kids are from heaven

by Dragos Ionel

When I first learned that one needs to be like children in order to get to heaven, I thought it a figure of speech.

Many years and three daughters later, I understand that this is as true as saying there is a sun up in the sky.

But more than that, I found the kids to be a gift from heaven sent down to teach us about it.

Most of the time we think we are the ones guiding their steps into our world.

But the reality is reversed. It is they who are guiding us towards a better world.

This book is the proof.

All stories are real, each being a lesson my daughters taught me.

School Help: A Teacher and Tutor Guide to Help the Older Student with Limited Word Reading Fluency

by Carmen Y. Reyes

School Help: A Teacher and Tutor eGuide to Help the Older Student with Limited Word Reading Fluency is an ebook by Carmen Y. Reyes, The Psycho-Educational Teacher. Older students with limited word pronunciation or limited word fluency require a remediation approach different from remediation approaches used for younger children. One of the most common reading problems for our older students is their lack of knowledge in strategy using, simply put, weak readers do not know that to be able to pronounce longer words both fluently and with comprehension they need to apply different word attack strategies to different words. Even when they know some strategies, it is common to see these children struggling in the application of the strategy, not knowing when or how to apply a specific strategy to a particular word. In other words, children with low reading fluency are not proficient in strategy using or in using cue systems. To overcome a word-reading problem in an older child, teachers and tutors need to provide remediation that focuses less on the memorization of rules and more on strategy using and cue systems. On this eguide, we explore nine cue systems that children need to know to develop reading fluency. With this knowledge, once the child sees a particular word, he or she knows what strategies are available to identify the word. Ranging from phonological knowledge (most basic level)-to-semantic knowledge and syntactic analysis (most sophisticated), children learn how to recognize, combine, and apply different cue systems to read longer words.
