How this Book came About, Sue Woolfe , Kate Grenville , 1993 single work criticism interview (p. xi-xiv)
Jessica Anderson : "The Commandant", Sue Woolfe , Kate Grenville , 1993 single work criticism

'In The Commandant, the reader suspects from the earliest pages that some momentous fate awaits Captain Logan, the Commandant of the Moreton Bay penal settlement. The official version of the terrible events that happened in Moreton Bay in the 1830s was that Captain Logan was murdered by Aborigines while on an exploring expedition. Anderson's novel probes other possibilities. Although Captain Logan is the main character in the book, the story is seen mainly through the eyes of his sister-in-law Frances, who is different from him in every way: she is powerless, sensitive, and naive. Her perspective helps to give us a keen sense of what it was like to live in the colony at that time.' (Introduction)

'A fiction writer will often begin writing a manuscript in a rough and fragmentary manner, and over time transform these early attempts into what is hoped will be a publishable manuscript. Yet there is little in the creative writing literature on the practical aspects of writing process as utilised by writers, and/or on how writing process might be taught. Using writing process theoretical research, and accounts by writers of their processes, I look at how process, and in particular revision, can be taught in the undergraduate fiction writing workshop. I argue that effective student learning about revision occurs in response to assignments which ask students to re-enter the fictional world they have created, and make substantive changes.'
