According to me business writing provides valuable information, which is capable of answering all the possible queries of customers and on the other hand creative writing draw people's attention with the help of poems, stories and other content.

As for me, there is a big difference. After all, a creative composition is written in an arbitrary form. But a business letter has a narrow specificity, a narrow topic for discussion. There are rules for each type of lowland. Explore more recommendations and then start writing.

I bought a business writing online course a few days ago.
Business writing is something that businesses used to communicate with customers, not just sales letters and promotional materials.

In business writing, you don't have a voice. You are irrelevant.

Business readers want the information now, concise, to the point, non-dandelion fluff.

Spit it out: who, what, when, where, why, how.

Business writing aims to disseminate information; creative writing aims to disseminate it in the most imaginative way possible. It considers what the greatest words, styles, and meanings are. It inquires as to how the message might be honed.


Business prose is the polar opposite of creative writing. To create suspense and interest, creative authors frequently offer bits and pieces of information. They don't want to sell anything; instead, they want to take people on a voyage that takes them away from everything else.

Business writing has her structure, but creative writing hasn't.

In my time at college, when I worked for a newspaper, I'd remain up until late into the night, and sometimes till the morning, writing my story within the workplace. It's not like it took an incredibly long time writing, but I'd take my time, write it, hand it over to my editor and return it full of red marks and remarks and notes about what my editor is looking for. Rinse, repeat.

It was a challenging course, no doubt however it helped make professional writing simpler for me later. At present, I'm working on an assignment as a copywriter which is a breeze for me.

Writing is a procedure. Business writing, creative writing, or whatever... writing is an ongoing process. It's not a magical process to write an amazing story. The actual writing process is just one part of what we refer to as "writing." In actuality, story planning and structuring the story prior to draft as well as post-draft analysis and editing, proofreading, and revision are all as essential to "writing" as... well, writing.

I think business writing is something more serious when it comes to structure, requirements, and so on. There are 'rules' which you have to follow. And creative writing is up to you - write what you like.
That's how I see difference, in general

Yes, you're right. Writing is complex procedure, which includes editing, proofreading, etc, which is very important if you want to compete a story, creative or business

Writing is a procedure. For me, it can be hard to write something, depending on a theme or issue. In such situations, I try to find inspiration and examples. Last time I wrote on animal testing, which is a serious issue. And examples on https://paperap.com/free-papers/animal-testing/ helped me with writing. So, I can say that writing may sound easy, but it's not. It's an art which requires skills and practice. Business writing, creative writing, or whatever... writing is an ongoing process.

I agree with you. Writing is time consuming, complicated and complex process. And without efforts, and dedication, you won't be able to write something interesting and catchy.
