 · In my opinion: Creative writing isn’t something you can really teach other than guide a writer how to own their craft and style that is effective to them. I think teachers need to have a serious conversation with tthemselves about why they are grading “creative writing”. What should a student learn from the grade.


 · Although no two creative writing projects will look exactly the same, using a rubric, a specific set of evaluation criteria, can help you clarify your expectations for students. Rubrics also easily point students to the areas of their stories that need work, streamlining the revision process, indicates creative writing teacher Yvonne Blomer.
