    Abstract

    A consideration of the stimulation of creative writing in young people. especially in the upper stages of secondary school. The author considers his experiences as a teacher and as a professional creative writer. The author suggests that more process-strategy approaches need to be employed to develop a writing culture in the classroom, and offers an exemplar activity with pupil responses for discussion.
