The Place of Creative Writing in Composition Studies
Hesse, Douglas
College Composition and Communication, v62 n1 p31-52 Sep 2010
For different reasons, composition studies and creative writing have resisted one another. Despite a historically thin discourse about creative writing within "College Composition and Communication," the relationship now merits attention. The two fields' common interest should link them in a richer, more coherent view of writing for each other, for students, and for policymakers. As digital tools and media expand the nature and circulation of texts, composition studies should pay more attention to craft and to composing texts not created in response to rhetorical situations or for scholars.
