Abstract

This paper addresses aspects of critical writing and campares these with the requirements of creative writing. Commenting upon how the creative informs the critical, and vice versa, the paper examines how critical writing in cultural studies contexts necessarily draws on an amalgam of the theory and practice of everyday life. It argues that a journal article or academic paper worth reading in a critical forum requires novel insights and clear expression to make it interesting.
