Using G.M. Glaskin's works in teaching creative writing.

My refereed paper on using G.M. Glaskin's works in teaching creative writing has been published in the Proceedings of the 10th Conference of the Australian Association of Writing Programs. Gerry Glaskin was a remarkable Australian writer, more read outside Australia than in. His output was significant, but these days largely forgotten. Writing students, though, would learn much in studying his works. 'The eaves of night', a so-called novella from 1975, shows an almost post-modern approach to story-telling. These days we'd probably term it creative non-fiction.

e-books and the Australian Publishing industry

My views on this matter, and they are already out of date, were published in the prestigious Meanjin journal in 2010. Meanjin republished the article on the Meanland website, here.
