NotesThe ways we teach creative writing and the environments and spaces we make available for the teaching and learning of creative writing at universities may well be ripe for change. In university creative writing courses, what we have been teaching all along is the art of balancing a delicately intuitive and entwined process of holding on and letting go that is the fusion of theory and practice. The future for teaching and learning creative writing however, will be more about space and spaciousness for the dynamic energy of creativity, the dynamic energy of practice. This chapter contextualizes the history of creative writing in Australia and positions the future possibilities and opportunities for the discipline.
