December 10, Staff Writers. There are some occupations out there where people just do what they have to do, and then there are those occupations where people do what they want and love to do. The beauty of getting a degree in Creative Writing is you get to spend tosemester hours doing what you love to do most: doing nothing but writing and getting great feedback from top professors who were in your position once upon a time and worked hard to get their works published. You can then follow your dream and have a career doing what you enjoy doing most. If you have a creative mind and have the drive to write and be heard, this is the perfect graduate degree for you. According to Glassdoor, jobs in writing are expected to increase slightly over the next ten years.

Your story matters
Are you looking for a comprehensive list of creative writing prompts and journal ideas for your students? On this page, you will find a large list of writing topics that will spark creative ideas in your students during journal and creative writing activities. I have created these writing lists during my 22 years of teaching experience. I have grouped these creative writing prompts together into categories of similar topics to make it easier for you to find writing ideas in the area that you are interested in. First, you will find creative writing prompts for each month of the year.
Each November, writers all over the world participate in National Novel Writing Month NaNoWriMo , challenging themselves to write an entire novel in just thirty days or fewer. The real goal is to encourage community among writers by connecting them around a very ambitious individual goal. Plate is a major advocate for the challenge and is heavily involved with Creative Writing Club events on campus. Geremy Carnes [associate professor of English] deserves the credit for originally suggesting to me that the club jump in and take the challenge. Every year, a few hardworking Lindenwood community members reach the elusive 50,word mark by the end of the month.
