Creative writing has evolved into a highly organized academic discipline, with popular courses and prestigious study programmes worldwide. This book is essential for students and teachers of creative writing, but also for anyone who aspires to publish their work. It deals with this complex form of art easy-to-grasp manner, touching on important concepts for the rapidly developing field of creative writing, while at the same time insisting on placing great emphasis on craftsmanship, analyzing writing patterns and providing relevant exercises. The Greek edition has been enriched with a Preface by Takis Kayalis and an Epimeter with texts by Haris Vlavianos, Antigoni Vlavianou, Evripidis Garantoudis, Nikos Davvetas and Georgia Pateridou.
