  Encyclopedia :: encyclopedia : Creative writing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Creative writing is a term used to distinguish certain imaginative or different types of writing from generic writing.
The lack of specificity of the term is partly intentional, designed to make the process of writing accessible to everyone (of all ages) and to ensure that non-traditional, or traditionally low-status writing (for example, writing by marginalized social groups, experimental writing, genre fiction) is not excluded from academic consideration or dismissed as trivial or insignificant.
While some people still argue that true talent for writing cannot be taught, it is now generally accepted that it is possible to teach techniques which help people access or exploit their creativity, from overcoming writer's block and generating random ideas, to understanding how standard genres of writing achieve their effects and structuring their work.

 Granta: What We Teach When We Teach Creative Writing
I moved here almost a decade ago to join a graduate creative writing program and have stayed ever since, supported by grants and fellowships, advances and awards, but mostly through teaching in the same kind of programs I first came to study in.
The technique that I teach in creative writing classes—how to construct a scene, how to strike a balance between narration and dialogue—largely lacks such specialist terminology.
Write what you know, show don't tell, are catchy slogans, but if they're rules at all, they're at best rules of thumb.
