Creative writing

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Creative writing is considered to be any writing, fiction, poetry, or non-fiction, that goes outside the bounds of normal professional, journalistic, academic, and technical forms of literature. Works which fall into this category include novels, epics, short stories, and poems. Writing for the screen and stage,  screenwriting  and  playwriting  respectively, typically have their own programs of study, but fit under the creative writing category as well.

Memoir

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A memoir (from French: mémoire/ Latin: memoria, meaning memory, or reminiscence), is a literary genre, forming a subclass of autobiography – although the terms 'memoir' and 'autobiography' are almost interchangeable. Memoir is autobiographical writing, but not all autobiographical writing follows the criteria for memoir set out below. The author of a memoir may be referred to as a memoirist. Examples of memoirs now considered "classic" include Henry David Thoreau's Walden or Harriet Jacobs' Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl.
