Digitizing Craft: Creative Writing Studies and New Media--A Proposal
Koehler, Adam
College English, v75 n4 p379-397 Mar 2013
This article identifies and examines a digital arm of creative writing studies and organizes that proposal into four categories through which to theorize the "craft" of creative production, each borrowed from Tim Mayers's "(Re)Writing Craft: Composition, Creative Writing, and the Future of English Studies": process, genre, author, and institutionality. Using research from composition studies and literary studies, the article examines the concerns each of these categories is beginning to confront as more and more creative texts recruit digital technologies. As such, the argument outlines four tiers that each work as a line of inquiry regarding the valuable--indeed necessary--ways to imagine concerns regarding craft in twenty-first- century creative writing studies.
