Creative Writing: Introduction
This course will introduce you to ways of writing and thinking about poetry, multimedia, short prose fiction and drama and screenplay. It combines lectures on genres and creative composition with smaller tutorials that give students time to practice the techniques and engage the ideas they are learning. We will discuss how language transacts the imagination and how we recognise, produce, resist and combine creative writing genres. Students will compile portfolios with completed exercises, poetry, literary prose/short fiction, one short play or piece of screenplay and one multimedia composition. The course is ideal for students who wish to pursue creative writing at Stage III and masters level.
NB: Enrolment is limited to 120 students.
