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.

Its with great pleasure I am announcing you my new job as 'Park Manager' for a 5 star hotel in Reunion Island.  Its definitely my courses with ADL (Botany, Agronomy and Trees for Rehabilitation) which were decisive for my nomination. Accordingly, my sincere thanks goes to all the ADL team.

"The course was a valuable learning experience as it provided me with the knowledge and understanding for me as a Careers Advisor. The feedback was very good from my tutor, and allowed me to  build upon my assignments that were marked. The comments were very informative  and very useful. Well written course material."  Andrew W, Careers  Counselling, UK
