This article investigates the teaching of Creative Writing in Universities against the backdrop of their increasing popularity around the country. It asks the question, ‘Are Creative Writing courses a worthwhile activity to be involved in, both for teachers and for students?’ The writer describes his own journey from teaching English in London Comprehensives to becoming a lecturer in Creative Writing at the University, both at BA and MA level. He makes clear the day to day working practices of Creative Writing courses and gives examples from his own experiences of teaching students. The progress of one MA student is looked at in detail, from the start to the end of a one year degree. With the help of some inspirational advice from practicing writers and theorists, this essay seeks to make a case for more Creative Writing teaching in schools and highlights its importance in Higher Education as a source of imaginative play and development.
