Most of the faculty who are active writers do not have a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing (CW) but are aware of the pedagogical methods developed by CW programmes abroad, have varying levels of informal training in CW themselves, and actively engage with the ideas of a creative pedagogy in the classroom. Adding a CW component to a course not devoted exclusively to writing and workshopping provides key learning opportunities. Students learn to see the creative production of texts as a form of knowledge production, situated within a larger continuum of critical analyses of texts, mini-ethnographies, and research papers. The introduction of a CW component in non-creative classrooms plays a genuinely democratising role, making students more aware of their own voices.
