Teaching Creative Writing in the Twenty-First Century: Addressing All the Genres by Penelope Prentice( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An argument can be made for an expansion in the creative writing curriculum to cover all genres. The essential principles of writing in all genres, poetry, fiction, drama, tv, and film can be taught, with the positive effect of saving a serious writing student years of stumbling in the dark. A responsible creative writing course of the present and future must be sensitive to serious writing students' needs by preparing them for writing for radio, film, and tv, without ignoring the important, traditional genres. A course could be developed that might not contribute only to upgrading writing in the media but also afford the professionally bent student writer the best preparation by linking the genres, demonstrating, for example, how poetry and film must both move audiences a long distance in a relatively short space of time by shared techniques, such as controlling images, and a powerful, emotional closure. The course offers the more casual student a greater appreciation of writing, while it develops a greater awareness of self and life. Good writing offers the greatest opportunity to communicate trust and the courage to confront, even to initiate, conflict that inspires the change necessary for growth and development. Suggestions for classroom instruction are provided for the genres of fiction, poetry, drama, film and tv. (Twenty references are attached.) (Mg)
Tell Me a Story I'll Never Forget or Deconstructing Traditional Narrative Plot/yths to Challenge the Ethics of Conflict by Penelope Prentice( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In recent years some exceptionally optimistic writings by feminist scholars have addressed a shift away from the male manque model of femininity to one celebrating feminine growth. Archetypal myths have inculcated people's minds with the notion that domination and conquest serve to justify men's domination over the feminine. Narrative communicates myths that people live by, and imaginative works have power to motivate people. An essential source of this power is conflict, but this feature is now being challenged by feminists. Also being challenged are tradition myths of hierarchy and success/failure. To construct a "new woman," playwrights must know the old. Archaeological evidence shows ancient societies ruled by women, focused on affiliation and not dominance. Women are turning to ancient texts, goddess religions, and a return to Eros to redeem the divine in themselves to become whole women. Love and the erotic are linked to conflict in the works of many feminist writers. Toni Packer describes the process essential to the self-knowledge necessary for bringing about change and peace in the self, and excerpts from her writings demonstrate the influential aspects of images on the construction of the self. In short, simple attention and questioning are the necessary first steps to changing the way conflict is deployed and internalized. By changing the stories, change will be produced in the world. Images and conflict ultimately cannot be completely avoided, but fresh non-destructive ways of evoking and confronting both should be explored. (Thirty-four references and two notes are attached.)
