- 21. EXAMPLE: A TRIP TO THE GROCERY STORE • A passage without sensory details: “I went to the store and bought some flowers. Then I headed to the meat department. Later, I realized I forgot to buy bread.”
- 22. EXAMPLE: A TRIP TO THE GROCERY STORE• With additional sensory details: “Upon entering the grocery store, I headed directly for the flower department, where I spotted yellow tulips. As I tenderly rested the tulips in my rusty shopping cart, I caught a whiff of minty dried eucalyptus, so I added the fragrant forest green bouquet of eucalyptus to my cart. While heading for the meat department, I smelled the stench of seafood, which made my appetite disappear.”
- 23. LANGUAGE OF CREATIVE WRITING: IMAGERY 1. Imagery • Language used by poets, novelists and other writers to create images in the mind of the reader. • Includes to figurative and metaphorical language improve the reader’s experience through their senses.

- 27. IMAGERY USING TOUCH (TACTILE) “After the long run, he collapsed in the grass with tired and burning muscles. The grass tickled his skin and sweat cooled on his brow.”
- 28. IMAGERY USING SOUNDS (AUDITORY) “Silence was broken by the peal of piano keys as Shannon began practicing her concerto.”
- 30. IMPORTANCE OF IMAGERY • It allows readers to directly sympathize with characters and narrators as they imagine having the same sense experiences. • Imagery is found throughout literature in poems, plays, stories, novels and other creative compositions.
- 31. LANGUAGE OF CREATIVE WRITING: FIGURES OF SPEECH
- 32. LANGUAGE OF CREATIVE WRITING: DICTION DICTION • as style of speaking or writing, determined by the choice of words by a speakeror a writer. • Diction, or choice of words, often separates good writing from bad writing.
- 33. TYPES OF DICTION Individuals vary their diction depending on different contexts and settings. Therefore, we come across various types of diction. • Formal diction – formal words are used in formal situations, such as press conferences and presentations. • Informal diction – uses informal words and conversation, such as writing or talking to friends. • Colloquial diction – uses words common in everyday speech, which may be different in different regions or communities. • Slang diction – is the use of words that are newly coined, or even impolite.
- 34. FUNCTION OF DICTION • In literature, writers choose words to create and convey a typical mood, tone, and atmosphere to their readers. • A writer’s choice of words, and his selection of graphic words, not only affect the reader’s attitude, but also conveys the writer’s feelings toward the literary work.

Introduction to Creative Writing A Crash Course
Let’s start by just sort of yapping a bit about the whole creative enterprise. Take a look at this collection of quotations about writing, art, and the creative process: www.ndsu.edu/pubweb/~cinichol/CreativeWriting/323/Litquotes.htm Browse through the quotes and select one which you feel best represents your own understanding of creative writing and art.
What quotation did you select in Skittish Libations, and why? • What, for you, is “art”? What is “creative writing”? • What is the process one goes through on the way to creating fabulous poetry and fiction?
A confrontation with reality; facing reality Note that some types, such as satire, mock or interrogate reality The invention of reality Formalist Creative Writing The improvement of reality (art as a hammer An escape from reality; a sedative or distraction Formalist Defiance of reality; reality as it ought to be A magnification of reality Formalist
Process… Something produced solely for others; a means of pleasing an audience A mysterious inborn talent Formalist A commodity Expression that is shaped and crafted The honoring of tradition A pile of crap; a hoax; excuse for not having a REAL job Creative Writing Art Formalist A learnable skill Emotional or psychological therapy The subversion of tradition Expression that is wide-open and free Self-expression; solely for self ; exploration of one’s unique vision Formalist …Product…
Maybe writing’s a constant NEGOTIATION of binaries SELF OTHER Artist Audience Subject Object
Speaking of Past and Present, here are a couple of competing claims: • Creative Writing (Literature) is the art of language in the present moment: the live, unstable, mysterious evolution that is happening continually and right under our noses. It means brand new poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, script-writing, and genres we don’t yet know how to name. • Creative Writing (Literature) is the art of language as an ancient activity: something we’ve been doing since we first opened our mouths to speak and sing around a fire. Some theorists say that the impulse to create poetry is at the root of the human impulse to use language, period.
Ok. So. • Nobody knows how to define it. • Or there’s no final definition. • Then how do we learn it? • How does it get taught? • Should I, as a teacher, emphasize process… or product? Craft… or free exploration? The work of antiquity… or the work of the future? All I can tell you is that, when I go into a classroom….
I teach the writing of literary genres. Poetry, fiction. Creative nonfiction. Some script writing. • I encourage wide-open, glorious self-expression. Go for it,baby! • I encourage patience, self-denial, and disciplined attention to the needs of audience. Craft. • I encourage an understanding of Creative Writing as culturally embedded. • I encourage an understanding of Creative Writing as culturally discreet and autonomous. • I encourage thoughtful appreciation of extremely old traditions. • I encourage experimentation and looney new ways of thinking about the world. • I try to do everything. • That’s why I’m burning out. • That’s why I’m insane. • Don’t tell my boss.
Ok. Here’s a different wrinkle. wrinkle wrinkle
What is “Creative Writing” with a capital C and W? = the branch of English Studies that involves teaching and learning how to write creatively, right? Yeah, but…
Can it really be taught? Isn’t it, according to one ancient tradition, about talent and a mysterious ability to summon the muse? What’s it doing in a university? How do you evaluate it? How, really, is it distinct from Rhetoric and Composition, Literary Studies, Linguistics, even Technical Writing? Isn’t writing in these fields creative also? What’s more important: the writing of literature… or the study of it? Isn’t all language creative, really? Why even have a distinct field called Creative Writing? Can’t business reports, department memos, shopping lists, Facebook status updates, even check-writing all be “creative”?
Did you know… Back in the 50s, at the University of Iowa, Creative Writing was created as a course to help students understand literature better. I.e., it was in the service of literature studies. The idea was that by writing some fiction, poetry, or drama themselves, students would better understand the masterpieces of literature.
But also… a bunch of teachers who were also writers wanted to get together with other writers and blab about their work— in a college setting. They couldn’t hang out in the bistros of Paris or Gertrude Stein’s salon anymore (the way they did in the 20s) so they had to get together somewhere…) The university is now sort of the chief “watering hole” for writers. It’s where they come together, share what they’re doing, argue, write, and learn from each other.
It’s always been a bit of an outlaw… Not scholarly like other disciplines. The MFA is a studio degree. Very different criteria. Not necessarily considered “academic.” Has even been viewed historically as an almost spiritual pursuit. Sometimes considered a “soft” subject by the other disciplines in English Studies. …even though those same disciplines appear to respect accomplished writers hugely!
The belief that “creative writing” isn’t really rigorous or difficult is ill-founded. Writing a poem or story that works, that is worth re-reading, that gets us where we live… IS FRAPPING DIFFICULT!!! The next time someone suggests that Creative Writing is a “fluff” discipline, ask them to write a poem and submit it to the Paris Reviewor Poetry. Tell them to “go ahead; give it shot. See how easy it is.”
In any case, over the last three decades, Creative Writing programs have proliferated like crazy across the U.S., and record numbers of students are FLOCKING to them. Despite its sometimes marginal status in the university, despite dire warnings that the printed word is dying out and giving way to a visual culture, despite scary statistics which show that reading is ever on the decline, despite the pragmatic, vocational, corporate, and anti-art bent of most universities… Creative Writing continues to absolutely flourish!
A Few Fun Facts
It was from Creative Writing that the whole notion of “writer’s workshop” developed. Creative Writing workshop strategies were borrowed by, and are now standard features in, composition courses all across the country. Since the 1980s, Creative Writing has had a somewhat ambivalent, and at times downright antagonistic stance toward academic trends—especially the advent and dominance of critical theory. At the same time, however, creative writers of all genres have produced works which significantly helped to shape our very understanding of postmodernism. New fields related to Creative Writing are on the rise, primarily under the influence of Composition Studies. You can now get an MA and PhD, for example, in “Creative Writing Studies” which examines: Creative writing pedagogy The culture of creative writing/creative writing in the culture The history of creative writing in the university.

Creative Writing - PowerPoint PPT Presentation
Creative writing course by henry harvin. – powerpoint ppt presentation.
- Creative writing is a form of writing where creativity is at the forefront of its purpose through using imagination, creativity, and innovation in order to tell a story through strong written visuals with an emotional impact, like in poetry writing, short story writing, novel writing, and more.
- Short Stories
- Be an Avid Reader
- Reading all types of writing can spark ideas in your own imagination. The more you read fiction and creative nonfiction, the more you'll naturally adopt their natural rhythm and flow.
- Keep an Idea Book/Notes App
- Inspiration for creative writing can strike at any moment. Be prepared with a notebook dedicated to ideas or even a notes app on your phone. When you periodically browse your ideas, you might find that combining a couple of seemingly unrelated ideas sparks a new piece of writing.
- Ask What if Questions
- To tap into your creativity, ask yourself questions that start with What if? For example, if you know you want to write about a tiger, you might ask yourself What if the tiger is best friends with a deer? or What if the tiger doesnt look like an ordinary tiger?
- Write with Abandon
- If you have an idea for a story, sit down and start typing, without editing as you go. Just let the ideas flow out of your mind. After the story is out of your head and onto the screen, then you can consider revising.
- Read Your Work Out Loud
- Even after you've gotten it all out, it's still not time to edit. Read your idea out loud to hear how it sounds. See which scenes jump out at you. Remember which bits of dialogue are particularly powerful.
- Create a Scene List
- You might want to outline your scenes after you've written that first draft of your story. This helps you organize the plot line and make sure it flows.
- Proofread and Edit Out Fluff
- Now it's time to proofread and edit. Even though your work is meant to be creative and original, it should still follow standard writing rules. While imagination is key to creative writing, you still need to remove any "fluffy" parts of the story.

CREATIVE WRITING SKILLS
The aim of this research is to determine the effect of creative writing activities on the skill of university students in writing story genre text. Unequaled control group model which is half experimental is used in this research. 1/A section (experimental group) of standard class and 1/B section (control group) of evening class from Turkish Language Teaching Department of Gazi Education Faculty of Gazi University constitute the sample of the research. 60 students participate in the research in total. The data obtained from the result of creative writing activities processed in 10 weeks are evaluated with regard to “The Scale of Story Writing Skill ”. It has been revealed that according to scale of story writing skill there is statistically a significant difference between the points [t(29) = -5,172; p≤,05 ] the students got from the post-test in the experimental and the control group. In other words, creative writing activities are more effective than traditional writing education in improving story writing skill. Besides, creative writing activities have a significant effect on content dimension [ t(29) = -3,668; p≤ ,05 ]; planning dimension [ t(29) =-3, 151; p≤ ,05 ]; characterization dimension [ t(29) = -5,666; p≤ ,05]; setting dimension [t(29) =-4,479; p≤ ,05 ] , and time dimension [ t(29) =-4,471; p≤ ,05 ] of story structure. According to these results, creative writing activities should be mentioned in Turkish courses and confidence in classroom should be taught in the relevant department of teacher training agencies and preservice teachers should be trained as qualified ones in terms of both practical and theoretical aspects of creative writing.
This study focuses on genre based approach of teaching writing as a powerful educational tool. This study emphasizes the use of genre approach of teaching writing which focuses on the generic structure and key linguistic features of text written for particular purpose. In the genre based approach of writing, samples of a specific genre are introduced, and some distinctive characteristics of the given genre are pointed out so that students notice specific configurations of that genre with the help of teacher’s intervention and in next phase, students attempt to produce the first draft through imitating the given genre, and finally construct original written task independently. The genre based approach of teaching writing offers students “explicit and systematic explanation of the ways language function in social context and help them to consider the forces outside the individual that help guide purposes establish relationship and ultimately shape writing.” (Hyland 2003). The genre based approach equips the students explicit knowledge of how genre of text is organized. Students learn that genre of text has subject matter and writing style consisting of introduction, body and conclusion of a text. (Martin 1989, Swales 1990) .

This research investigates the creative process in fiction writing employed by three writers of different writing genres: short story, novel, and poem. This study applied a qualitative method that involved one male and two female writers in Kuningan and Majalengka. The data collected from document analysis, observation, and interview were analyzed through descriptive qualitative method. The results of the analysis revealed that there were five creative processes of writing fiction used by the writers in writing fiction, namely preparation, incubation, insight, evaluation, and elaboration. Besides, it also revealed that novel writer is more creative than short story and poem writers since he uses all steps of creative process. In addition, the researcher found that there were some ways of exploring imagination in writing fiction, including drawing and deepen characters in the film or theater, making mind mapping to write, developing a shorter text, and expecting that the writing will be read by younger generation.
In the writing of fantasy and science fiction there are different types of story worlds that can be created. A writer needs to understand the type of story world they are using or they have created and write a story that is coherent within that world. Audience and readers have got used to a range of narrative and story world conventions, so there are ‘rules’ and established forms. New forms develop and this means that story conventions change, but a writer needs to be clear what the rules are for the world they have created for their specific story because the reader/viewer needs to be clear what is credible and what is not. This is a guide for the writer.

MUDALLA : PROCEEDING INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ARABIC LANGUAGE
Cardiff University Phd Thesis
As a creative writer/maker in the academy, I could not be concerned with giving an account of surface or genre. My critical territory was my creative process, including how the essay itself intervened in the making of the novel. My concentrated research on literary texts began only done after I had completed a first draft of the novel. I had to have written a first draft before I knew what Backstory was really about at its core and I knew the influence of other fiction writers might have taken me away from that discovery. Neither did I research critical theory before I wrote. In terms of form, I found that I did have beliefs, if not theories and it was necessary for these beliefs to surface during the process of making before I could be interested in reading Theory. The reading and research that really did motivate me while I was writing was historical and factual rather than literary; it was about the history of child adoption. Original sources revealed attitudes and language concerning orphans that put difficult personal material into a context. Overall I found that writing the novel opened up the questions that academic critical research might have begun with. In this way, I came to the conclusion that creative writing research is fundamentally different from literary research.
