In creative writing courses, you will write poetry, fiction, play scripts and screenplays. You will read and analyse recent and contemporary published writing to develop a capacity for reading carefully and critically.
Courses include an introductory unit on the writing of short fiction and poetry, and courses in advanced fiction writing and scriptwriting.
All courses use a workshop model, in which your work will be discussed and developed. You will have the opportunity to make editorial suggestions for peers’ poetry, prose and scripts as well as reflect critically on your own creative writing. Experimentation with style and form is encouraged.
Courses include discussion of editing, publishing and production processes.
Creative writing courses can be taken as part of an English Major or Minor, or as an elective.
