Fay Weldon speaks up for creative writing | Opinion | Times Higher Education
I strongly feel that the best writers are the ones with truck loads of creativity and imagination. It doesn't matter how many creative writing courses you go on, although you may grasp the mechanics of how to structure a story and what gives impact etc, you will only be a great writer if you have a great story to tell. And that takes creativity which comes from something within. I believe that creative writing courses and the experience of writing can bring out the best in you but there had to be some spark of creativity in order to ignite it.
Tell me what you think!
