TOWARDS A NEW AWARENESS OF CREATIVE WRITING.
JENKINS, KENNETH D.
CREATIVE WRITING SHOULD BE GROUNDED IN THE EXPERIENCES OF THE WRITER. THUS, IN TEACHING CREATIVE WRITING, THE TEACHER MUST REALIZE (1) THAT HE IS NOT ABLE TO TEACH CREATIVITY, (2) THAT CREATIVITY IS NOT RESERVED FOR THE INTELLECTUALLY GIFTED, (3) THAT THE STARTING POINT FOR CREATIVE WRITING IS THE INDIVIDUAL'S EXPERIENCE, (4) THAT WRITING IS DIFFICULT, AND (5) THAT THE STUDENT'S WRITING MUST BE MET WITH RESPECT AND BENEVOLENCE. IF THESE CONDITIONS ARE MET, THE PROCESS OF WRITING CAN BE A PLEASURE FOR THE STUDENT AND AN EXPERIENCE IN THINKING. (THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE "ENGLISH JOURNAL," VOL. 54 (JANUARY 1965), 21-22.)
