Creative writing

2.2 An Evolving Definition of Creative Writing The term 'creative writing' was used in the 1930s in relation to instructing students in the writing of fictional prose, poems and scripts (Pope, R. 2005 p.198). This definition does seem somewhat restrictive though and I would argue that the nature of creative writing is constantly evolving or being rewritten, just as creativity is. For this project I will be confining myself to the exploitation of writing fictional narrative prose for language learning. There are of course untold opportunities to exploit other forms of creative writing and I may make mention to some of them in passing as my ideas evolve but my main focus is narrative or story writing.
