We have heard from our student's classroom teachers that after being in our after school creative writing class, their student's writing improves overall.
Some believe this might be due to the confidence and self esteem that is developed by becoming comfortable with writing. Instead of writing being an unpleasant challenge, our students develop an ease with writing that they never had before. They are also able to develop new ways of thinking and forming ideas, a skill that carries over into any form of writing.
What do you think?? How has creative writing helped you in other types of writing?
