Abstract

This book explores the effectiveness of the workshop in the creative writing classroom, and looks beyond the question of whether or not the workshop works to address the issue of what an altered pedagogical model might look like. In visualizing what else is possible in the workshop space, the sixteen chapters collected in "Does the Writing Workshop Still Work?" cover a range of theoretical and pedagogical topics and explore the inner workings and conflicts of the workshop model. The needs of a growing and diverse student population are central to the chapter authors' consideration of non-normative pedagogies. The book is a must-read for all teachers of creative writing, as well as for researchers in creative writing studies.
