- How much of what you’ve read (or written or seen or heard) would you consider to be ‘art’? What makes writing art? How do you, personally, define a creative and artistic piece of writing? You might find it useful to refer back to the discussion at the start of Part One. That was about the visual arts, but many of the same points apply to word-related arts too.
All of the reference researched yesterday on Creative writing and New media would be considered art, and well as some of the music I listned to, and definitely Dr. Strange and Laurie Lee’s book is art. Creative writting is defined by the author, are they a well established writer with years of experience? I can say yes to Laurie Lee, and all the New Media artists I researched. I say Dr. Strange was art, because of the amount of art direction involved in the special effects, it was like watching a Esther painting come alive. A Joni Mitchel song about the streets of Paris, and a Wilco song on God, it is all poetry, it is all a form of creative arts.
