Description

In the study of creative writing, there is a lack of research on the lasting impact the class has on students, as well as research on the ways creative writing is implemented in the classroom. Creative writing is an umbrella term for the high school elective class that covers a variety of writing styles including, but not limited to, poetry, short stories, and dialogue. This literature review collected and analyzed twenty articles, investigating creative writing and the missing data in order to evaluate effective practices to teach creative writing and the practical benefits of the class. The significance of this research is to assess the value of the creative writing elective, and to evaluate if it should be cut from the school curriculum because it is outdated, or if it is it still valuable for students.
