What is Creative Writing ?

Imagining basic ideas and expressively putting them through a specific art of writing is classified as creative writing. It is one of the most dominant ways of writing for building up a deep connection with readers because, in this writing, the emotion of a writer touches upon the heart of the reader through words. Once the reader comes in a grip of emotion, he rejoices in the sublime art of writing.

It falls apart from other types of writing because of the least rules and formats. A writer can draft his words to project his art in any style. A writer is free to use his imaginary vision for a precise narration of his content. In this style of writing, metaphor, simile, and rhyme are commonly used to make all readers fully conversant with the writer’s vision and it leaves a deep impression on the reader.

It is written to express the literature and methodology of ancient times. It also helps the reader to visualize a vivid picture of content effortlessly. It aims to get connected with readers fundamentally. Creativity is a key element for this sort of writing wherein every bit of information is passed to the reader in form of a unique style.

Types of Creative Writing

Creative writing covers a vast area of writing to convert a writer’s voice into the form of the word. It is written to project all sorts of fiction and some non-fiction content which immensely helps a writer to produce his creative content. 

Let’s know Some Forms of Creative Writing :

(a) Poem – All poets bring attention to their readers through their creative writing. In the creation of any poem, creative writing plays a pivotal role. Poems are purely symbols of art and creative words.

(b) Movie – A scriptwriter adds value to the movie by contributing his creativity in the form of words. There, the art of writing plays a lead role in the success of a movie.

(c) Plays – Demonstration of play is a lucrative method of entertainment in which the character disseminates the moral of the play by his voice. Here, only creative content adds weight to play. 

(d) Fiction – It entails all sorts of novels, short stories, novellas , etc. Fiction writing cannot glamour its value without creativity. Writing a novel, short or long story requires creativity to get the constant attention of readers. 

(e) Speech – A speech can touch upon the audience’s hearts if it carries the emotion of an orator in voice. Creative writing assimilates all emotions in it.

(f) Songs – Each song contains creative lyrics. Lyrics may lose their grip on people if it is written factual. Hence, in song, this writing plays a significant role.

How Can One Develop This Key Skill of Writing?

Writing about any creative topic demands versed skills in a writer. Although, creative writing is an art but can be honed by consistent practice and guidance. A true aspirant of this writing can develop it by taking any creative writing course and daily writing habits. Certain techniques can help immensely to develop this art gradually. Although, various online and offline Creative Writing Courses in India are available to cultivate this unique art of writing.

Let’s Learn How to Start Writing Creatively: 

(a) Read a Lot – A versed writer first becomes a voracious reader before attempting to write anything. Reading a range of books based on interest teaches us a basic frame of writing. Consistent reading habits can help us in absorbing the fine content of a book. A reader can perceive the demand of a reader. In addition to that, a reader can reap useful vocab and phrases from good books and can use them in his writing. Reading also encourages a writer to write about a learned lesson.

(b) Find Your Niche – To write about your interest always remains everyone’s cup of tea. One must figure out his sphere of interest before an attempt to write. Once one reads and writes his imagination in a particular area of interest, he starts honing this art of writing. Niche makes a writer’s mind concentrate on one sort of writing and he evolves his writing gradually. 

(c) Seize All Chances of Writing – We should never skip any single chance of writing whatsoever that comes in our way. Writing on daily basis will inculcate our habit of writing and gradually the habit of writing leads us to excel in our niche. We can keep a daily journal or handy notes, and notepad apps on the phone for cultivating writing habits. 

(d) Find Out Your Audience and Their Area of Interest – Writing in our niche is one best idea one should keep in mind. But we must also identify what our audience demand from us. First of all, there should be a vivid picture of our audience then we should try to fulfill their need through writing.  

(e) Add Literary Content in Writing – Creative writing paints our picture of imagination in the form of words. To make a vivid picture of it, we should incorporate the usage of metaphor, rhyme, and similes in our writing to make it more lucrative and insightful.

(f) Have a Deep Understanding of the Subject – Before attempting to write creatively, we must imbibe knowledge about the subject. We can grasp enough knowledge of a subject by doing enough search on the internet and reading related books. We can enlarge a broad picture of a subject if we carry out thorough research about it. Knowledge also boosts our confidence level and primes our minds to create easy content about the subject

(g) Depicts a Story of Your Subject – Story is easy to consume by a reader and once the reader lands his attention on our story, we can take him into the depth of our subject. Hence, the articulation of a good story in our writing can work as a tool for us. It bridges the heart of the writer and reader. Moreover, the story gives us a space to put our imagination into the story.

(h) Don’t Pause Your Flow of Writing – Our thoughts come out as a stream of the river. If we try to hold it, it does not get direction. Similarly, our imagination for a subject comes like flow and we should keep writing without any interruption. Let it flow and then reshape it as per the audience’s understanding. Our flow while writing helps us to put all the pieces of content.

(i) Use Emotion in Writing as an Adulterant – Writing creatively is not rule-based writing. Our content is driven by our rigid or soft emotions. If we subtract those emotions from writing then it will be an empty post of characters. So, in this writing, we should cater to our emotions while crafting words for the subject. Non-verbal communication is not interpreted by simple words then there is a need for the expression of emotion through creative writing. This writing demands emotion for deep explanations.

The Benefit of Creative Writing

Creative writing has gained widespread popularity in the writing industry because it has been working as a powerful tool for writers to take them one step more advanced than any other mode of writing. The information entailed in this writing goes hand in hand with the reader because the writer does not write his knowledge in it but also shares his emotion in the form of words. 

Let’s Count the Benefits of Creative Writing:

(a) Elevate Your Mental Flexibility – Everybody is overwhelmed by the stimulation of emotions. In a study , it was highlighted that a person who exercises this writing expresses his emotions organically. A creative mindset always perceives opponents’ empathy and responds according to them which also helps a creative writer profoundly in writing.

(b) Build Your Vocabulary Bank – Writing creatively needs a range of vocabulary and phrases to express emotions and solutions. Practicing this writing will grow your vocabulary stock which directly strengthens your writing skills. Writing begins with a single word and ends with a conclusion. 

In this process of writing, a creative writer also emphasizes words to generate new imagination and again shapes that imagination into words. In doing so, a writer goes through many words and learns to use a single word in different ways.

(c) Spike Your Confidence Level – It engages a writer to write about imaginary things wherein a writer finds an asymmetric problem and attempts to find a solution for the same. And the writer feels appreciated after getting answers for imagination. It directly hits on the dopamine loop of a writer and makes him confident about any real problem. Writing gives a push to our confidence because a writer makes himself proud of new things. A generation brings a proud moment in every generator’s life.

(d) Writing Hones Your Communication Skills – Writing hones your communication skills because we get in touch with others’ perspectives while crafting words in this writing. If we can build up the quality to read the mind of our audience then we can deliver our ideas smoothly.

In this writing, the writer touches upon his audience’s aspect and tries to cater to everything. No matter how good content we have in our minds and how much we know about something because your projection of content makes you apart from others. Likewise, in this art of writing, a writer develops this art of projection through imagination and practice.

(e) Become a Creative Author and Inventor – This writing offers you tremendous opportunities to become an author. A creative author holds expertise in this writing. In addition, he can coin new words and phrases and can become the inventor of buzzwords. Nowadays, It has been observed that people are inclined towards creativity and love to do it.

This inclination is rising the demand for creative writers in the market and the art of creativity is making a distinguished profile.  All Vedic literature, scripture, epic, and methodology are subjects of great wisdom and cannot be learned by normal text. To visualize the essence of these scriptures, epic and literature are essential to be interpreted through creative language. Hence, there is a requirement for a creative writer.

(f) Writing on Creativity Makes You a Multitasker – Writing about any creative topic fuels your multi-task ability. In one study, it is found that children catch many creative ideas when they are told to write something creative about themselves. 

(g) Writing Creatively Equals Meditation – Writing is not merely an action but a reaction to our inner communication. It is the result of our flow of emotions. When a writer pens down something arbitrary then he begins to get down word his thoughts by the ladder of writing. In this process, he releases the clutter of the mind and gets rest. Some writers also ventilate their toxic thoughts with words and recharge themselves. Therefore, writing is equivalent to mediation.

10 Best Creative Writing Courses in India

Ritika tiwari.

  • January 22, 2023

image header for creative writing

Finding and enrolling in the best creative writing courses in India has been more difficult than I thought. At least it used to be, seven years ago when I had just dived into freelance writing. I wanted to hone my skills and practice fiction writing too, which is when I started looking for creative writing courses online. 

For a while, I even considered getting an MA in creative writing in India. But as many working professionals like me will agree — there is simply not enough time. 

I was initially more inclined towards classroom courses since those would help me get out of the house more (I work from home ) and they would also allow me to network with other writers. But most of the classroom courses I found were either not available in my city or were incredibly expensive. That is why I also started looking at free creative writing courses online.

In this article, I take you through all the top creative writing courses available both as classroom courses and online.

What is creative writing?

Creative writing is any writing where creativity is involved and differs from normal academic, professional, journalistic or technical forms of literature. This form of writing uses imagination and innovation in order to tell a story. It can involve fiction, essays, scripts and poetry. Professional writing courses give you the tools you need to ace creative writing.  

Though constant learning and practicing will improve your creative writing skills. Free online content writing courses with certificates help you reach your writing goals.

For a freelance writer, taking up a creative writing course online can help you hone your skills and also move more towards fiction writing. There are many brands who need storytelling writers and even poets.

  • Master different writing styles and techniques
  • Produce great fiction
  • Understand and apply principles of creative writing in stories and poems
  • Become a professional of literary masterpieces in English. You’ll understand how this plays a role in the creation of book or novel writing
  • Write more convincing and captivating plots to hook readers
  • Enhance your vocabulary and hence improve your communication skills
  • Empower yourself as a writer and improve your creativity

Small Correction : For IGNOU, Its page no 86 in the prospectus and not 80. Thank you for the information.

'  data-srcset=

Thanks Kunal 🙂

'  data-srcset=

I did the DCE from IGNOU in 2002. The notes are pretty basic. The project work gets you to write a lot and that’s a bonus. I wouldn’t mind doing it again if their syllabus has been updated.

I am actually thinking of taking up that course in the summer, will definitely update you when I do

'  data-srcset=

Hey Ritika! Did you take up the course? What is your feedback on this??

No, I did not end up taking any of the above listed courses. I was thinking to take up IGNOU but I heard the curriculum wasn’t good. The only viable option is Symbiosis one but I am not sure if I am willing to put that much money in :/

Thanks for your reply Ritika! I too am on second thoughts about Symbiosis for the very same reason!!

'  data-srcset=

Great compilation of courses with helpful and accurate descriptions! Thank you 🙂

'  data-srcset=

Hi ritika Plz give ur feedback .I think u should hav completed it now

Hi Jasdeep, I am not doing these courses right now. Though I do recommend, checking out the eBook mentioned above

'  data-srcset=

Interesting post! I have some experience of IGNOU, not in Creative Writing though, and that was like, a century ago and therefore out of date anyways, but my experience was positive all in all. Thanks for visiting my blog and see you after April! 🙂 Stay well.

Thanks for you inputs Nilanjana!

Now I am really inclined to do the IGNOU course. Lets see 🙂

'  data-srcset=

Hi Ritika, Useful post! Elsewhere i could find review about the course at IGNOU, and it wasnt a promising one. The syllabus is outdated and for a year or two the course was not conducted and people who had registered were’nt intimated about updates. Since I am looking for a distance learning program, hence i am left with SCDL, Pune (as only IGNOU and SCDL have distance learning program on Creative Writing). I am looking for a review on its course. Kindly share if you have some review related info about the course. Thanks ! Taruna.

My research led me to the exact same place. IGNOU doesn’t seem worth it

'  data-srcset=

Hi guys, I am pursuing a distance learning course from symbiosis pune on creative writing. It is good and has 6 exams and 6 projects to be completed in a year. It has been interesting and provides insights into creative writer’s lives and many other aspects of writing. It is expensive compared to other courses as mentioned here but I am working so this works for me.

That’s great to hear Rimpy! If it works for you and fits your schedule then there isn’t much you can ask for! Whenever you finish the course, do share your complete experience 🙂

'  data-srcset=

Hi Rimpy , I m planning to pursue creative writing course in symbiosis .. please provide Info regarding modes n types of examination conducted. Its damn expensive so b4 joining wanna know wthr is it worthy .Thank you

I registered for DCE in June with IGNOU in July my classes are only going to start on October :P. They told me that I have to attend 1 class every month in study centre. I also registered with SDCL from there I get a message every day that admission is extended a week more :P. let’s see what will happen NB: I paid ignou fees it’s just 3k.

Hi Ritika Myself Manish Tiwari from Allahabad. I am working as Trainer. i am about to quit my job and i am going to shift Mumbai for writing. New differnt types of ideas comes in my mind and when i start to write then i feel i am missing something

'  data-srcset=

Hi Ritika What i have to do to become a freelance writer.Is there any good center in Kerala or near by Bangalore to study creative English.is creative English course enough to improve writing style?

'  data-srcset=

I have registered for DCE with IGNOU. I got a mail specifically informing me to collect study material from IGNOU regional center. I don’t know how this works. Have written a mail to send the materials to me directly. Will keep posted on what happens, so that other aspirants can take an informed decision.

Yes, that’s what I heard from some other sources. The thing with IGNOU is – they don’t really care. They have a way of doing things and they are not flexible. Please let me know how your course goes 🙂

Well, surprise! IGNOU has sent me all the course material through courier. However submitting projects is still unclear. Timeline of the course is a bit vague as well. However all course books are with me. Content looks pretty decent. For all the aspirants out there, I suggest you to go ahead with the diploma in Creative Writing if its impossible for you to attend workshops or classroom certificate courses.

Thanks for all the details Nahusha. Would you like to write a review about the IGNOU course about the website? 🙂

'  data-srcset=

I too planning about pursuing this course. Will it be beneficial plz suggest.

hi Nahusha Can u plz tell me all d details for registration in DCE wid IGNOU . What is the fee structure there? how to pay? how they send us data? is there any exams or just assignments

Fee structure : 3300 Payment can be done by debit card. They will send all material by post. No exams. A project at the end of the course. Every info is available at their site.

I am looking up for an MFA in creative writing which I guess is not worth if done in India. But if you have any idea about the course which would be beneficial if done here itself, do let me know. Because Symbiosis has a distance program which is like, we are just playing in the sands, instead of going in the oceans for much adventure. And being a passionate writer, I also have my blog but the thing is I want to work for some magazines, if you have the answers to any of my above queries please mail me at [email redacted] else awaiting for your reply here itself.

Regards, Indrajeet

I would suggest going the internship way, instead of doing an MFA, if your end goal is to work in a magazine
