They say that creative writing cannot be taught. That you need a literature degree to become a published author. That it’s not worth trying to make it as a writer, as they don’t earn any money…
You’ve probably heard all that before, but is it true? Are creative writing courses worth it?
Absolutely! Creative writing can be taught, it doesn’t require a degree and, as precious as you are about what you’ve written, it is a joint venture; you need someone to check your work and provide feedback.
Creative writing can be a rewarding and stimulating pastime, an emotional outlet or a pathway to a new career. You can earn a part- or full-time wage from writing creatively, or you can just write for the fun of it.
What do you need to become a writer? There is only one thing you need to call yourself a writer and it is a certain, special something that all successful writers have: a finished piece of written work! Joining a creative writing course can help you finish your novel, screenplay or memoir and keep you motivated to write more!
