  • Fiction could be for entertainment
  • Escapism
  • To enjoy one’s imagination
  • Non fiction could be to learn
  • To explore
  • To live in a story
  • To share the story with others ( eg via a book club)

Why do people write?

  • To explore a topic
  • To express themselves
  • To share the story
  • To escape into the story
  • To enjoy using their imagination
  • To learn
  • For enjoyment
