This panel seeks papers that explore the value of creative writing exercises in the composition classroom for the 41st NeMLA Conference in Montreal, April 2010. Topics may include but are not restricted to: How does imagination, inherent in fiction, nonfiction, poetry and drama, lend to the skills required to write analytic research papers? What is the relationship between creativity and the ability to transform and invent meaning? Does creative writing, arguably not a formal discipline, become valid in the service of composition learning outcomes, and what specific exercises achieve these outcomes?
