Abstract

Drawing upon recent research projects undertaken by the authors and others in the international research community, this fascinating text considers the nature of composing and the experience of being a writer. In the process it:
• explores the role of talk, creativity, autonomy, metacognition, writing as design and the shaping influence of literature and other texts;
• examines young people’s composing processes and attitudes to writing;
• considers teachers’ identities as writers and what can be learnt when teachers engage reflectively in writing ;
• shares a range of professional writers’ practices, processes and perspectives;
• gives prominence to examples of writing from children, teachers, student teachers and professional writers alongside their reflective commentaries.

This thought-provoking text offers theoretical insights and practical directions for developing the teaching and learning of writing.
