You can accumulate credit towards your chosen award at your own pace. You can study towards a postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma or, on completion of a full writing project, a master’s degree. There is also the opportunity to learn how to teach creative writing in schools or in the community.
One core module lays the foundation for skills and techniques in creative writing, while another addresses writing for career development. Option modules make use of imaginative writing, creative visualisation and commentary elements to cover such topics as writing novels and short stories, working with poetry and lyrics, producing copy for drama and performance, scriptwriting for film and screen, and teaching creative writing. Some modules involve traditional seminars and workshops, but many incorporate a negotiated learning element.
Typically graduates will go on to roles in freelance writing, teaching, publishing, arts and humanities, media, performance and/or the creative industries.
