Covering all of the major genres, The Bloomsbury Introduction to Creative Writing is a complete introductory manual for students of creative writing. Now in its second edition, the book features an updated and expanded chapter on writing for digital media, and new exercises for reading across the genres and writing hybrid forms. Through a structured series of practical writing exercises - perfect for the classroom, the writer's workshop or as a starting point for a portfolio of work - the book builds the student writer from the first explorations of voice and the relationship between writing and knowledge, through to mastery of a wide range of genres and forms.

The Bloomsbury Introduction to Creative Writing
covers such genres as:
- Autobiographical writing
- Short fiction

- Writing for digital media, including video games and social media

With practical guidance on writing scholarly critiques of your own work and a glossary of terms for ease of reference, The Bloomsbury Introduction to Creative Writing is an essential manual for any introductory creative writing course and a practical companion for more advanced writers.
