Abstract EN

Reading motivation is the cornerstone of learning the foreign language, and creative writing is the gate that helps understand the logistics of the language.

Accordingly, this paper aims at investigating the students' attitudes about whether or not there is a relationship between creative writing and reading motivation.

A questionnaire is used as a data collection tool.

It was addressed to 25 first year master students (option TEFL) at Oum El Bouaghi University.

The participants claimed that creative writing is beneficial at many levels, but still there is reluctance in practicing it.

The results also showed that there is an interrelationship between creative writing and the motivation to read because if the students start to write in a creative way on a regular basis, they will be passionate towards writing and they will seek for ways that make their writing prosperous.

Thus, their reading motivation will be boosted because reading is the main source of vocabulary learning.
