Chapter: 1. Someone Recorded Crickets and It Sounds like Humans Singing

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.23820


The co-editor of the volume provides a personal introduction to the collection and an overview of the contents, explaining that the overriding questions the editors and authors asked themselves in assembling this volume was: How do practicing writers enhance their own creativity, and how successful have they been in helping their students become more creative? Could the very same approaches that writers use for their own creative practice be taught to their students? Could a body of best practices be assembled, or is creativity still an individual response?
