This book is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate Creative Writing students and their tutors. Arranged into weeks, the book contains enough material for a 2 x 10 week programme, plus additional workshop material to help students think differently about creative careers and being a writer in the world. If you are not on a course, the tools in this book will help you to establish a writing habit, especially if you need help getting over fear of the blank page.

How to Think Like a Writer introduces you to a writer’s toolkit, a set of tools that you can use to generate words and connect with your creative side. These tools will help you to accept and confront your internal censor or judge and to develop a writer's mindset.
