I’m trying to compile a bibliography of books on the art of teaching creative writing. There are a wealth of titles on how to write for publication, and a lesser-but-still-rich number of books on how to teach writing — but the latter are predominantly about teaching composition skills or scholarly argumentation. When I search for pedagogy for fiction teachers, I only find a paltry few — and so many of them seem targeted at elementary ed teachers, rather than higher education. Nothing wrong with that, but I’m looking for help in developing teaching skills for adjuncts and graduate students attached to our Writing Popular Fiction program at Seton Hill U.
Even the Association for Writing Programs has little to offer, from what I can tell (though I did find a good pedagogy forum and a nice free .pdf on their site for Program Directors).
If you know any titles, or have any recommendations, please post a comment below or e-mail me.
