Situated among fields (applied linguistics, creative writing studies, writing studies), this book empirically explores the language of writers in contexts of learning externalized in literary genres. At its core, this book features linguistic and thematic analysis of the writing and reflections of adults who experienced what they usually described as meaningful CW in university coursework, sometimes in science and research-focused courses where they might not have expected to compose a literary genre. In addition to synthesizing empirical studies that in total included more than 3,500 participants, chapters present new research involving about 400 more. This book is meant to be substantial in its goal of systematically organizing what is known about CW’s relationship to writers: in terms of feelings of engagement, gains in content knowledge, and revelations about oneself and others.

Table of Contents
“Overall, this book is beneficial to teachers and researchers of creative writing in terms of providing empirical evidence, practical applications, and pedagogical implications of using poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction in diverse disciplines. As shown in this book, the use of creative writing is not limited to literature, composition or literacy courses; but rather, it has great potential to be used and taught even in the natural science courses (e.g., science, chemistry) in higher education to develop disciplinary communication.”
