In 2009, when the Government raised the possibility of losing subjects such as creative writing in favour of more ‘vocational’ options, it became important to creative writing practitioners in universities to demonstrate its relevance in Higher Education. Many students are engaged on joint degree programmes and this led lecturers to consider a multidisciplinary approach. Students on programmes combined with English were required to use the short story as part of their assessment. This paper discusses how the use of creative writing has many benefits and not for the subject area of English only.
