This unique resource brings together contributions from creative practitioners
and academic researchers working across different disciplines. Researchers,
literary authors, editors, performers and film-makers reflect on their work and
collectively explore the art of creativity in language and literature.

"Creativity in Language and Literature" covers a range of texts, genres and
practices, such as poetry, hip hop, film, story telling, web chat and pen-friend
correspondence. Each part of the book begins with an introduction and the final
part includes critical responses to the idea of linguistic creativity, encouraging
ongoing dialogue and debate. This richly diverse collection is an ideal text for
students and practitioners working at all levels.
