Creative Writing

Creative writing is most popularly understood to be writing that comes from the imagination, writing that is ‘not true‘. Creative writing is the very fine art of making things up, in the most attractive, apt and convincing way possible. It’s the telling of lies in order to reveal illuminating and dark truths about the world and our place in it.


Creative Writing Includes:
Short Stories
Play Scripts
Movie Scripts
TV Scripts
Song Lyrics
And Even Comics
