pinot noir Posted October 24, 2010 Share Posted October 24, 2010 (edited) Hi everyone, Does anyone know if it's acceptable/admirable to use creativity in the SoP? i.e. as a writer telling a story using "show don't tell," characterization, description, and dialogue with a punchline and development that fully explains what you want to do, why you chose the school, who attracted you to the program, etc... I am applying to a creative writing program(s). Originally I wrote the piece as a prologue to my book so I've worked long and hard at it and the idea came to me to use the little anecdote (with slight revisions) as my Statement of Purpose. Any thoughts? appreciated Edited October 24, 2010 by ifwriterscouldtalk Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
