Exploring ways of developing your creative practice: Creative writing 

Youth Creativity Training Course | DiARC Project

The Youth Creativity Training Course that was developed within the DiARC Project, consists of 18 academic hours, broken down into 5 modules. In between the modules learners are to be engaged in individual and group learning activities. The Course contains 5 modules covering spectrum of knowledge, skills, and attitudes, that will equip learners to be social innovation practitioners in the CSO space. 

The objective of the module 2, on creative writing is to provide a concrete training structure with accompanying training materials and concrete exercises for people to boost their creative writing skills. Creating compelling stories that inform, touch and inspire audiences is one of the most sought-out skills in the history of humankind. 

Creative writing is a form of writing where creativity is at the forefront of its purpose through using imagination, creativity, and innovation in order to tell a story through strong written visuals with an emotional impact, like in poetry writing, short story writing, novel writing,
and more. Given the fact that creative writing is often of an experimental and innovative nature, it is no surprise that it takes a number of different forms such as: poetry, short fiction, novels, plays and screenplays, comics, graphic novels, and graphic narratives, personal essays, humor writing, etc. 

In this module, learners will enhance their creative writing skills by following and implementing short yet powerful exercises. At the end of the course further readings, links to creative content and videos are available.
