Why Creative Writing?

Yes, creative writing should be taught in schools. Creative Writing allows for children and Teens to be able to express themselves through writing. They get to choose what it is they are writing about. This debate has been happening for a while and I don’t see why. Not every paper that you write is going to be research. Creative Writing can inspire wacky ideas like flying on a household cleaning item (broomsticks) or becoming friends with a 3 ft tall elf that talks. My argument for Creative Writing is Harry Potter. I’m not too sure but I’m almost positive it has nothing to do with research.
