7 Content Writing Skills from a Creative Writer’s Perspective | Writing | Scoop.it

It is important as a content marketer to apply creative writing skills to content writing. Learn the best skills from a creative writer's perspective.Truth be told, I kind of fell into content writing. After being crazy about literature my whole life I went to university to study creative writing, a course I adored and that gave me invaluable experiences in not just fiction and poetry, but scriptwriting and journalism too. Then came graduation, and after that… nothing.Then came content marketing...

I'm thinking about this a lot as I move into a robust writing career, but from the starting point of a creative writer.  What other skills did this article miss?  What can we in the "creative sector" offer the corporate content juggernauts?

I have the great privilege teaching a Creative Writing workshop at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The students I've worked with have been amazing storytellers, and it has been a privilege reading their work. One of the coolest parts of the job, though, is publishing their work in the class's online literary journal at the end of the semester. 


The students nominate editors part-way through the course, and those editors take it upon themselves to copy-edit the submissions (each student picks his/her best work from the class for their submission; submitting is not a part of their grade or enforced, but is up to them) and write a preface/introduction for their particular issue. 


It was an honor to work with Sarah Carstensen and Leah Denman, the nominated editors from The Workshop's Spring '13 cohort, putting up The Journal. It is no exaggeration to say that the two of them went above and beyond what was asked of them, in producing this great issue. 


I hope everyone who has time will visit it and have a good read. That's why these stories are out there: to be read.

Creative Writing and Empathy: How Writing Fiction Helps You Connect With Others

Creative Writing and Empathy: How Writing Fiction Helps You Connect With Others | Writing | Scoop.it

Writing forces you to “walk in your characters’ shoes” in a way that reading can’t.

 

Empathy and fiction: what’s the connection? Empathy is an important thing: when you lack it completely, you’re a psychopath, and no one wants that, except perhaps if you happen to be a character in a thriller.

 

One of my friends who studies psychology posted this on Facebook a while back: it’s an article about why men should read fictionand claims that reading fiction teaches men to empathize with others.
