examples of creative writing
These guides are the result of a joint effort of the Writing@CSU project and the Colorado State University Writing Center. Development of these guides began in 1993, when the original Online Writing Center was developed for campus use at Colorado State University. Several guides were developed in Asymmetrix Multimedia Toolbook and then migrated to the web in 1996. Over the years, additional guides were developed and revised, reflecting the efforts of many writers and writing teachers. We thank them for their generosity. You can learn who developed a particular guide by clicking on the “contributors” link in that guide.

Quality, not quantity. Please don’t try to squeeze more writing into a 10-15 page count than can fit. It’s much better to submit one 12-page short story or a 12-page chapter from a novel than to cram two 8-page samples that you’re not excited about into a 15-page document. Your writing sample could be eight poems that you really love; it could be a 6-page short story and six poems. Whatever pages you feel best represent who you are as a writer are the ones that should go into your sample.
