The most popular online creative writing program in the world has a long way to go to achieve its goals.
And there are many challenges ahead, including a shortage of good writing talent and the inability to sustain it in a digital environment.
“The most important thing to do is to get as many writers in here as possible,” said James Wootton, creative director of Creative Pencil, a New York-based creative writing and art education company.
“We’re getting so much better at this now than we ever have.”
Wootton said that while there’s been an increase in demand for the program, there’s still a lack of creative talent.
“There are more writers, and that’s going to keep growing,” he said.
“If you’re a writer who’s writing about the future, you’re probably not doing it as well as you could be.
It’s a tough market.”
Wollman said the problem is not limited to digital writing, but extends to other creative fields.
“I think we need to stop having so much focus on our skills, and start paying attention to the talent we have in the industry,” he added.
“It’s hard to do.
If you’re an artist, you need to pay attention to all of the artists who are making money off your work.
If someone is a writer, they need to know all the writers who are writing, and then they need all the tools they need for the work they’re doing.
If they’re a musician, they should pay attention and then be able to hire the best music writers.”
Wodton said it’s not just digital writers that are in trouble.
“We have this huge pool of writers in New York City that are just really hard to hire,” he explained.
“You have to be really good at your craft and know how to craft an image, but if you don’t have the ability to make an image in a different medium, you just don’t get the right talent.”
Wowles said that the problem also extends to the more traditional fields of creative writing.
“In creative writing it’s like writing fiction or poetry.
If I’m writing a novel, I can’t make an original story.
If the author isn’t talented, I just won’t write it,” she said.”
If you are writing a screenplay, you can’t tell a story.
The best way to get people to like you is to be funny.
You can’t be funny and have an image.
You have to create that image.”
Wong added that while the program has always been focused on writers, the amount of talent being brought into the fold is going to increase.
“This is a creative revolution that we’re witnessing right now.
People are getting more creative,” Wong said.
“”This is where the next wave of writers will be.
If we don’t do this right now, we’re going to end up with a lot of writing jobs and very little creative talent.
