Associate Professor Dominique Hecq launches 'The Creativity Market '
Associate Professor in Writing, Dominique Hecq is widely published in literary studies, creative writing, psychoanalysis, and pedagogy, she is also the author of eleven creative books of which Out of Bounds is the latest. She edits Bukker Tillibul, the Journal of Writing and Practice-led Research aimed at postgraduate students.
This book focuses on creative writing both as a subject in universities around the world and beyond academia. It offers a thought-provoking analysis of creativity in the globalised marketplace, and examines the intersection of the university sector and the creative industries.
After the ‘long work’ of alienating creativity from commercial-political worlds, this book is evidence of a new consciousness of the ways these realms overlap, seed, deform and enliven each other. This exchange between writers from UK, the USA, Canada, Australia and Singapore debates and ponders whether creative writing might be a brilliant career move, a player in resurgent global education, a search for community, therapy, magic, an un-saleable invention, or our last real craft. Professor Kevin Brophy, University of Melbourne, Australia
