Crime Fiction and the Creative/Critical Nexus (for publication in October 2016)

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 - 5:02am
TEXT: JOURNAL OF WRITING AND WRITING COURSES (An international electronic refereed journal published twice yearly - ERA rank A)

The aim of this special issue is to examine the interaction of the creative and critical in the genres of crime fiction, true crime and academic crime fiction studies. It is not our intention, however, to leave this interaction to the serendipity of juxtaposition. For our purposes, therefore, creative writing and literary criticism will not be considered discrete practices; rather, it is at the junction and amalgamation of what may otherwise appear different discursive modes that we wish to tease out the "critical/creative nexus" with a focus on the craft of writing.
