Abstract

The author examines pedagogical choices in teaching creative writing after a move from the US to the UK in 2015. Inherited lore including Iowa Writers Workshop style critique and a preference for complex characters are discussed through the lens of drinking culture, engaged pedagogy, privilege, and US/UK politics in 2015. The essay concludes that engaged pedagogy and efforts at originality after the move across the Atlantic helped translate into a teaching experience that was beneficial for the UK Creative Writing students.
