In today’s age, where books are turned into motion and television shows, where poets team up with pop stars, and a single tweet can be the start of the national discussion or an upheaval, creative writing is a sought after skill that can also help you score the perfect job after college. The role of a writer, an author or a poet is not constrained by genre or geography any longer. Nor it is limited to seclusion and introspection. Instead, these days the writers are staying connected with their communities, the historical archives, expressions or by floating their own blogs. The writers play with what is accessible and give us what is conceivable. They present to us new ways of knowing, seeing, and being.
Creative writing is a broad term. There are a lot of types of writing that comes under this subject like: Mystery, Romance, Memoir-writing, Travel, Features, Poetry, Playwriting, Humour writing, TV serials, Science fiction, Book reviews, Lyrics, Criticism, Interviews, Business communication and Script- writing. And if you want to look beyond being an author, you can even be a content writer, an editor or a copywriter. You can also be a business communication writer.
