While advanced postmodern forms have all been explored as part of literary theory, this is the first time I have come across it in a writing manual, and Smith handles the difficult balance between analysis, clarity, and practicality very well.Some are classic, overall guides, and some work on specific niche areas, but almost all of them are built around the notion that you begin with a solid basis of straightforward rules about character, plot, structure and form, and that this is the area where teaching or books can assist, and then, once you are very experienced, you move away from the teaching process and play with the form.This is where Hazel Smith’s book The Writing Experiment is different.There are also chapters on playing with genre, using structural principles to guide the text, recycling other pieces of published work (not necessarily your own), playing with the narrative, and working with different types of dialogue.The advanced strategies include subverting plot, character, history and physics as we understand it, writing poetry and lyrics that delve into subversion, dissonance, taboos, the extension of metaphor, and as visual experiment.This has the effect of making one idea in the sentence seem more important than others, or at least of making one central idea the focus of the sentence.Grammar also fixes meaning, and makes it as unambiguous as possible.Smith draws on her extensive experience as teacher of creative writing at the University of New South Wales in Australia, her research work in this area, and perhaps most importantly, her personal experience as writer, performance poet, and collaborator.As one would expect, the book is impeccably researched, and makes for fascinating reading in itself, and servers as a primer towards post-modernism, looking at a wide number of creative and challenging texts, from Barthes to Kristeva, and exploring the whole notion of self-expression in the context of this work.In addition I am involved in an ongoing text generation project with Professor Roger Dean, the MARCS Institute, which uses computational 'deep learning' techniques.Reviewed by Magdalena Ball The Writing Experiment: Strategies for Innovative Creative Writing By Hazel Smith Allen & Unwin March 2005, softcover, A.95 ISBN: 1-74114-015-3 There are almost limitless books on how to write.
