This research investigated the relationship between accuracy, complexity (lexical and grammatical) and fluency of language learner in written narrative tasks and learner creativity and its components in the context of Iranian EFL students. To this end, a sample of EFL students from four universities in Mashhad (Iran) participated in this study. Our study involved measuring the participants’ creativity using creativity test and eliciting written narrative performance from the participants with the help of a narrative task. The task involved two parts of narrating a story on the basis of a picture and writing a past memory. Then we calculate fluency, accuracy, lexical complexity and grammatical complexity of their narrations using relevant formulas. We used correlation and t-test to analyze the data. Different findings were obtained applying either method. Finally, the results were discussed in the context of language teaching and learning.
