The Politics of Creativity

Saturday, March 28, 2009 - 5:38pm
Thomas Girshin / Binghamton University

There seem to be two ideas regarding what is called "creative," "expressive," or "personal" writing in composition discourses. In one view, creative writing is seen as the work of the lone genius, who creates the Literature studied by English departments. Such a view, while having fallen out of favor in composition studies, is still considered viable in creative writing departments. Furthermore, as Susan Miller argues, it continues to haunt composition in the form of the split between composition and literature departments, and student writing and "real" writing. In the other view, creative writing is deemed overly subjective, apolitical, and generally inconsequential.
