Dear Amarjeet,

 

If creative writing is your passion, you will be able to make a career out of it. Creative writing is an artistic pursuit. The opportunities are endless and is available wherever printing and publishing are available. Magazine editor, Novelist, Poem writer, content developer, journalist etc. the openings are plenty.

If you want to become a creative writer in English, you need to have abundant grammatical skill and knowledge in English. In any language, to be a creative writer, you need this as your basic qualification. In terms of qualification, Post graduation in that language is preferable. Thorough expertise in grammar and usage of sentences will be an added advantage.  Creative intelligence is another must.

 

After obtaining thorough knowledge and skill in grammar and Post Graduation in selected language, you can opt for creative writing courses offered by some colleges in India through regular and distance mode. IGNOU offers a Diploma in Creative Writing in English through distance learning mode. The British Council, Delhi, offers multiple creative writing programs. Symbiosis distance learning center offers diploma in creative writing.

 

Whatever course you choose, flair in writing and writing skill, if you have, you can succeed and climb the ladder of career without any doubt. If you feel you have the flair and passion. Please go ahead. Select Creative writing as a career.
