Abstract

This thesis project discusses writing creatively as it leverages rhetorical and compositional strategies as part of the creative process. The paper also argues that the use of varied disciplinary theories and knowledge from such diverse areas as psychology, sociolinguistics, grammar, mathematics and statistics, all assist in writing fiction. It discusses the study of ethos, pathos, and logos, as it has bearing on the writing of short fiction, and its use to foster a more effective writing process. The remainder of the project includes ten original, short fiction pieces.
