I am interested in writing and I’m quite good at it.

I am a student of Class X. I am interested in writing and I’m quite good at it. Moreover, I love English. So I am planning to take English Literature after 12th followed by a course in creative writing. Can you tell me if there is any college in India that offers this course (even abroad)? Kindly mention the jobs that I can opt for by taking those courses.

An essential requirement to become a creative writer is passion for writing and love to communicate with words. This field requires a lot of imagination, observation and an inborn ability to create pictures of the natural world.

There are many institutes all over India which offer courses n creative writing. But most of these are diploma courses with duration of 1-3 years. Eligibility for these courses is graduation.

Some such institutes are: Sri Aurobindo Centre for Arts and communication, New Delhi; Amity Institute of English and Business Communication, Noida; Indian Institute of Journalism & New Media, Bangalore; Indian Institute of Mass Communication, New Delhi; The British Council located in all metro cities in India; Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, New Delhi; Indira Gandhi National Open University, New Delhi offers a post-graduate diploma in Creative Writing through its distance learning programme.

You can work as a content writer in any of the KPO firms or get involved in writing stories, articles, books and scripts that are highly demanded by editors and publishers. Even a career as a freelance writer may provide you with a good income.
