The CD-ROM version of Microsoft’s Creative Writer is scheduled for release Oct. 1, with Microsoft’s Fine Artist released on cd-rom Nov. 1.

First introduced on floppy disks in December 1993, Creative Writer is a creative writing and desktop publishing program.

Fine Artist is a multimedia drawing and painting program.

Creative Writer and Fine Artist will ship on dual platform cds – that means one cd will contain Windows and Macintosh-compatible versions.

Both require a Multimedia PC or compatible with a 386 or higher.
