Darryl Whetter publishes his seventh book

 Church Point (NS), October 29, 2021 - Darryl Whetter, professor of Creative Writing and English literature, has just published his seventh book. Titled Teaching Creative Writing in Asia, it was published in August, 2021 by Routledge.

This book examines the dynamic landscape of creative educations in Asia, exploring the intersection of post-coloniality, translation, and creative educations in one of the world’s most relevant testing grounds for STEM versus STEAM educational debates.

Several essays attend to one of today’s most pressing issues in Creative Writing education, and education generally: the convergence of the former educational revolution of Creative Writing in the anglophone world with a defining aspect of the 21st-century—the shift from monolingual to multilingual writers and learners. The essays look at examples from across Asia with specific experience from India, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, the Philippines and Taiwan.

Each of the 14 writer-professor contributors has taught Creative Writing substantially in Asia, often creating and directing the first university Creative Writing programs there. This book will be of interest to anyone following global trends within creative writing and those with an interest in education and multilingualism in Asia.
