Creative Writing eBook


A discipline that goes beyond books and articles, creative writing can be applied to everything we write; from press releases to twitter tweets and blog posts.  Learn how to use creative writing to crate content that communicates and engages with its reader


Creative Writing

by the Staff of ACS
 

Creative Writing eBook course online. Creative writing can be applied not only to articles and books; but in everything we write, from marketing material to social media. Writing that is creative will usually be more interesting, communicative and effective. This book explores not only how to be more creative with your writing, but also expands your perspective on how and where to use it.

It is difficult to offer an absolute definition of creative writing. Perhaps even to attempt to do so would be somewhat paradoxical. A broad definition of creative writing would be something along the lines of “an open and imaginative form of writing in which the author freely expresses their unique thoughts and feelings. 


It is the focus on authenticity, imagination, and expression which separates creative writing form other forms.
