Creative Writing and English

Show Summary Details


This essay celebrates the recent growth of Creative Writing in undergraduate English studies in Britain. It attempts to explain how Creative Writing enhances traditional English by giving students both a more thorough understanding of literature and alternative but equally valid ways of expressing their understanding. In addition, it argues that extending English from the purely intellectual and analytical into the practical and creative provides students with a more rounded literary education.
