The Psychology of Creative Writing takes a scholarly, psychological look at multiple aspects of creative writing, including the creative writer as a person, the text itself, the creative process, the writer's development, the link between creative writing and mental illness, the personality traits of comedy and screen writers, and how to teach creative writing. This book will appeal to psychologists interested in creativity, writers who want to understand more about the magic behind their talents, and educated laypeople who enjoy reading, writing, or both. From scholars to bloggers to artists, The Psychology of Creative Writing has something for everyone.

'... eclectic survey ... a wide-ranging companion to an under-researched area.' The Psychologist

'This book is well worth a read because it's interested in explaining what writers do rather than explaining it away, which is the tendency in literary theory.' Writing in Education
