Would you use a virtual world to teach creative writing? 
Imaginary worlds are another kind of virtual worlds.

Suggestions about how to use virtual world resources to teach creative writing: Writing in the scene, working together apart, scenes as prompts. role-play, cold reads.
  • Indeed, all virtual worlds were initially imagined.
  • One reason we like virtual worlds is that we can create the worlds we imagine.
  • And we can share that imagined world with others.
