- 6 points
|Semester 1||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
- Details for undergraduate courses
- Honours option in English and Cultural Studies [Bachelor of Arts (Honours)]
- This unit is designed for students who wish to work on substantial creative writing. Students prepare story outlines, submit writing for workshops and assessment, and read a selection of contemporary works in their chosen genres in order to develop an advanced sense of the possibilities of form in current literary practice.
- Students are able to (1) produce compelling and well-developed creative writing; (2) understand the demands and requirements of the process of writing; (3) develop a capacity to facilitate each other's work through constructive commentary; (4) independently identify the strategies used by contemporary artists and where appropriate apply these to their own work; and (5) express original arguments coherently and logically in oral and written formats.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) creative writing outline; (2) folio of creative writing; and (3) seminar participation. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
