Creative Writing programs are typically available to writers from the high school level all the way through graduate school/university and adult education.
Marksberry notes: While creative writing as an educational subject is often available at some stages, if not throughout, K–12 education, perhaps the most refined form of creative writing as an educational focus is in universities.
Following a reworking of university education in the post-war era, creative writing has progressively gained prominence in the university setting.
Most Creative Writing degrees for undergraduates in college are Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees (BFA).
Some continue to pursue a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, the terminal degree in the field. programs are becoming more prevalent in the field, as more writers attempt to bridge the gap between academic study and artistic pursuit.

Those who support creative writing programs either as part or separate from the English discipline, argue for the academic worth of the creative writing experience.
They argue that creative writing hones the students’ abilities to clearly express their thoughts and that creative writing entails an in-depth study of literary terms and mechanisms so they can be applied to the writer’s own work to foster improvement.
Creative writing is any writing that goes outside the bounds of normal professional, journalistic, academic, or technical forms of literature, typically identified by an emphasis on narrative craft, character development, and the use of literary tropes or with various traditions of poetry and poetics.
Due to the looseness of the definition, it is possible for writing such as feature stories to be considered creative writing, even though they fall under journalism, because the content of features is specifically focused on narrative and character development.
