Abstract / Description

Gregory Light’s article touches upon some of the problems of learning and teaching creative writing as an academic discipline. It highlights the distinction between deeper learning and surface reproduction of knowledge as it relates to creative writing studies. This has interesting implications, as there is a tendency, with creative writing studies, to focus on the finished product (the texts produced by students) rather than on the learning process and the relationship between the two. Light’s study is useful for helping me to formulate teaching strategies that bridge that divide.
