Abstract:

Creative Writing: Poems and Short Stories for English Language Learning, a collection of poems and stories written by Asian teachers, continues the work of the Creative Writing Group in existence since 2003. The goal of the group is to produce original stories and poems, which would appeal to secondary school students in the Asia region. Writing these poems and stories is geared to offer accessible texts to the students because of their local themes and subject matter. The current text also attempts to meet a need for using poems and short stories for learning English as an additional language (EAL) in that both poetry and fiction remain an underused resource among students. Yet, they are of paramount importance, inasmuch as they act as a catalyst for a deeper appreciation of emotion and because of the way they are expressed vividly through words and through the rhythms and cadences of the language.
