Creative Writing Bibliography
A Faith and Learning Bibliography
Randall A. Smith, Ph.D., Martha G. Krystaponis, Joy E. Patterson, and Deanna J. Vanderver
Below you will find an extensive bibliography of books and resources related to creative writing, composition, and aesthetics. The bibliography is divided into the following categories:
- Biblical Worldview / Philosophy of Aesthetics
- Guides to Schools, Conferences, Workshops, and Careers
- Interviews and Memoirs
- Literary and Academic Journals
- Online Resources for Writers
- Primary Works by Selected Authors
- Reference Works for Writers
- Teaching Creative Writing
- Writing Guides for Various Genres
- Graduate Schools
While compiling the bibliography, the editors attempted to balance general and focused research. On the one hand, we included books related to the broad field of creative writing, from pedagogy to practice. On the other hand, we included many books related specifically to the intersection of a biblical, or Christian, worldview and creativity, composition, and aesthetics. Overall, the bibliography should prove useful to teachers, students, and writers regardless of worldview perspective. If you have suggestions for other works to include, please contact Dr. Randall Smith (Creative Writing Department Chair, Belhaven University, Jackson, MS) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
