About Creative Writing Academy

About Us

The Creative Writing Academy (CWA) is an efficient and productive Writing Academy with a passionate appreciation for the creative arts and culture.

CWA has been registered in Ghana under the Companies Code 1963 (Act 179) as an educational institution that equips students with practical proficiency and competence in Creative Writing, News Writing, Business Writing, Entrepreneurial Skills, English Proficiency, Effective Communication, and Critical Thinking and Reasoning.

As we take to the global stage, we aim to produce writers and communicators who can move people to action, connect with people worldwide and establish relationships for commerce, trade, and innovation, the creative arts, and tourism.

As colonial education continues to indoctrinate our youth via rote learning methods, students must learn to think critically. Writing creatively forces the mind to be curious. It works to develop ideas and encourages research, knowledge-building, and a quest for truth.

CWA is registered in Ghana under the Companies Code 1963 (Act 179) as an educational institution that equips students with Practical Writing proficiency and vital skills for growth and development.

CWA’s renowned faculty and staff come from esteemed universities, colleges, and professional bodies and institutions. These faculty and facilitators include distinguished published fiction writers, playwrights, poets, journalists, experts in entrepreneurial skills, finance, and business management, film directors, and essayists whose aim is to guide students to develop their skills and expand their conceptual appreciation of Writing as an Art Form.
