Abstract: I am a novelist; I never called myself a "creative" writer until I entered the Academy, where the difference between "writers" (everyone) and "creative writers" (those of us who practice imaginative writing of one form or another, rather than scholarship of any form at all) had to be delineated. I teach "creative writing classes," though that phrase tells one nothing much at all about what I teach, and how I do it.
