Review

Mokhtari's approach offers a breath of fresh air: in a straightforward and supportive fashion, she presents many of the ideas that need to be introduced to those beginning a writing degree, while deflating preconceived notions about creative writing. (TEXT Journal 2015-10-31)

Mokhtari writes with a keen awareness of the current and foreseeable literary landscape. . [S]he goes well beyond the traditional three- or four-genre creative writing text by expanding this guide to include chapters offering exhaustive introductions to screenwriting, writing for performance, writing for digital media, and writing critical theory/exegeses of one's own work. (College English)

The Bloomsbury Introduction to Creative Writing by Tara Mokhtari is a delightful and significant addition to the field. Despite its obvious erudition and the great range of knowledge it encompasses, Mokhtari's prose remains engaging and encouraging, full of humanity and good will. Her assignments and workshop tasks are both original and appropriate. I will definitely use this book in my Introduction to Creative Writing Classes. (Dr Gail Wronsky, Director of Creative Writing at Layola Marymount University, USA)

Thankfully, this comprehensive text saves me and my students the burden of buying multiple books for the introduction to creative writing course. The writing exercises and workshop strategies help organize a semester of practical learning, and it even guides students on how to critically read the genres in which they write. (Roger Sedarat, Associate Professor, MFA Program in Creative Writing and Literary Translation, City University of New York, USA)

Tara Mokhtari has written an extremely readable and practical guide to both traditional and emerging forms of creative writing - with exercises that actually work! But what makes the book unique is its insistent undoing of the divisions between literary creation and critical reception. (Bennet Schaber, English & Creative Writing, SUNY, Oswego, USA)

Tara Mokhtari's The Bloomsbury Introduction to Creative Writing is a wonderful building blocks approach to the spectrum of creative iteration; intelligent, approachable, methodical, informed, and yet relaxed and engaging, a wonderful first step for anyone who has been waiting to take that first step yet avoiding it because they didn't know how or where to start. (Chuck Rosenthal, author of Ten Thousand Heavens)

Tara Mokhtari's The Bloomsbury Introduction to Creative Writing is the ideal introduction to creative writing for undergraduates, upper secondary school level students and for forty-something urban professionals who always wanted to write the great novel, poetry collection, screenplay but somehow diverted themselves into law, dentistry or medicine to pay the bills. Tara is a fabulous poet, a talented fiction writer and a gifted teacher and this is an insider's guide that's full of highly useful steps to guide the beginning or the apprentice writer along the path to creative fulfilment. Tara's warmth, sensitivity, intelligence and bravery (she uses her own writing for some of the examples!) shine through this valuable introduction. I will be recommending it to my gang. (Dr Antoni Jach, Director of the Modern Writing Press Novel Writing Masterclass Workshops (Melbourne, Australia) and author of Napoleon’s Double)
