Creative writing classes are designed to prepare aspiring writers to become the next generation of creators, says the National Association of Authors, an association that includes publishers, agents, publishers’ agents, writers, and artists.
“You need to develop your creative writing skills,” said author-turned-producer, director and director of creative writing at Warner Bros., Kevin Treadaway.
“That’s where the creative writing is going to help you.
You’re going to want to know more about what you’re doing, how to build a story and how to make it compelling and engaging.”

Classes are typically taught by instructors who are also in the industry.
“We know that our students want to learn how to craft great writing and to make that work for them,” said Nancy Sorenson, the association’s executive director.
“They want to see their ideas and their work on screen and they want to make sure they have a voice in the creative process.”
The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), an association of writers and composers, has been promoting the importance of creative writers in the arts for years.
The group’s Creative Writing Certification program is available to all writers, including those with only a passing grade on their coursework.
“The more people who get their creative writing right, the better they are at writing for audiences and making the world a better place,” said ASCAP Creative Writing Coordinator, Julie Siegel.
“As a writer, it’s a lot more exciting than it’s ever been, and that’s part of what this is all about.”
