Science vs art
‘I feel deeply that the adversarial idea of science versus art is a false dichotomy’ says RLF Consultant Fellow Doug Johnstone on the RLF Consultant Fellows blog. And although some scientists may not see themselves as creative, inspiration is key to scientific writing.
Fiction vs non-fiction
I feel the same way about fiction and non-fiction writing for children. It’s a common perception that novelists are the creatives while us non-fiction bods are simply stating the facts. Another false dichotomy, and one that perhaps helps to explain the low status of children’s non-fiction authors.
