Introduction to the course – what is creativity, what is storytelling??

Creativity and storytelling are not the same thing. Although storytelling is an act of creativity, it does not involve only artistic forms. On the other hand, there are many kinds of creativity that do not tell stories or narratives (e.g., scientific discovery, mathematical thinking). By studying creativity and storytelling in the context of social media writing, you will learn techniques for creative writing and business communication.

Writing basics – grammar and vocabulary?

Grammar and vocabulary are the basis of all written communication. Learning how to use these tools correctly will help you become a better writer and speaker, as well as allow you to communicate more effectively and persuasively with your audience.

Creative writing using the Steps Method?

This method will help you to develop your creative writing skills by exploring different forms of content creation. You can apply this method to other parts of the curriculum as well. By studying the different steps of the method you will become more proficient at creative writing. You will also learn about depth, finding inspiration and how to develop your creative side.

Exploring creative writing styles?

There are many writing styles that are used in different contexts online. By learning about the different genres of writing, you will be able to communicate more effectively with your audience.
