Art and design students today face a wide range of writing tasks - from reflective and self-promotional pieces to reviews, essays and dissertations. This book is an answer to art and design students and staff, disheartened by negative past experiences, who say that they loathe writing, and encourage different approaches to writing - integrating it into studio practice, and promoting the notion of 'warm-up' preparations. This very practical volume sets out to take writing away from its 'academic-only' label and nurture its creative role in the process of art and design. It uses short exercises and creative writing techniques combined with the energy and liveliness of the workshop situation to help with academic issues in writing assignments.
