The term ‘creative writer’ has been a key part of our creative careers.
Creative writing has been associated with the creative industry for a long time.
In fact, it was the first category in the Oxford Dictionary of Creative Writing in 1911.
It was also the first to be awarded a British Writers’ Award in 1931.
However, it is not just a prestigious profession in Australia.
In Australia, the term ‘writer’ is synonymous with ‘writing’ and has been used for decades to describe any creative activity that is undertaken in a creative capacity.
This can include a variety of creative writing activities including writing a book, writing a blog, writing fiction, writing poetry, writing music, writing songs, writing articles, writing plays, writing films, writing novels, writing theatre plays and writing short stories.
The word ‘writer’, however, has a wide range of meanings and the term is often used to describe people who have a specific interest in writing, and the creative activities they undertake.
It can also be used to refer to a person who has a particular artistic and artistic ability.
What is Creative Writing?
In the past, it has been thought that the creative activity referred to as ‘creating’ is just writing.
However the recent rise in popularity of ‘creatives writing’ has brought the concept of writing to the fore.
Creative Writing awards are recognised by the Australian Writers’ Association (AWA) and are awarded to those writers who achieve an outstanding level of creative achievement.
In recognition of their achievements, they are awarded a Creative Writing Award.
The AWA is responsible for judging submissions for the award and awards a total of 20 Creative Writing Awards each year.
The award is named after the late author, novelist and award-winning author James Joyce who won the Australian Award for the most outstanding work of creative non-fiction in 2002.
The Creative Writing award is a unique award that is awarded to people who work in the creative industries in Australia, either as writers or writers-in-residence.
It has been recognised by a number of Australian organisations, including the AWA, the Australian Institute of Directors (AID) and the Australian Theatre Guild (ATG).
