Description

This book is designed to assist teachers and students understand the way story works, how it is created and some of the key tools writers use to create and write stories.

Story Craft places story at the heart of Creative Writing studies for students in formal and informal learning environments. It offers an effective adjunct to Curriculum, providing guidance on the creation of literary texts, key practices for developing writing skills, using language and understanding the relationship between reader and writer.

This guide to understanding the craft of writing stories is set out in three parts: Theories of story and the impacts of the structural elements; a project workbook to guide the student in planning a story (also available as a separate project book, Story Craft II); additional group and individual discussions and exercises to help students develop a deeper understanding of the theories and their project practice.

It provides teachers a fully structured, pedagogically sound methodology for helping students undertake writing for pleasure as well as to meet academic needs. Further resources may be found at Born Storytellers.
