Synopsis:

Teachers and writers everywhere are facing the limits imposed by the prevailing models of teaching: community or MFA "workshops" or, at the high-school level, "peer review". In Beyond the Writers' Workshop Carol Bly presents an alternative. She believes that workshopping's tendency to engage in wry scorn and pay exaggerated attention to technical details causes writers, consciously or unconsciously, to modify their most passionate work.

Inspired by a philosophy of individuality and moral rigor, Beyond the Writers' Workshop combines ideas and techniques from social work, psychotherapy, and neuroscience with traditional teaching of fresh metaphor, salient dialogue, lively pace, and analysis of other literary work. An extensive practical appendix provides exercises and examples.
