‘The Art of Writing Fiction’ is new guidebook to Creative Writing by UEA Senior Lecturer Andrew Cowan and is published by Pearson Longman this month. The twelve chapters of the book – which contains dozens of writing exercises – correspond closely to Andrew’s teaching on the undergraduate programme at UEA. The final chapter on the Creative Writing workshop draws on his experience of teaching the MA in Prose Fiction. Andrew is himself a graduate of both the BA and MA courses at UEA. He has published four novels, including the prizewinning ‘Pig’ and ‘What I Know’, and was a Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellow at the UEA before joining the faculty as a Senior Lecturer in 2004. He is now the Director of the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction).
