Writing for Production and Publication - ENGL390

This unit is structured around three linked modules that model an industry-relevant writing experience, beginning with a 'brief' or writing stimulus through to final submission of a creative work to the unit's e-journal.
In the writing module students demonstrate a high level of independence and build on their prior writing skills. Students nominate to focus on the particular genre of writing chosen for their writing major, either non-fiction, short story, poetry, or script writing, workshopping a creative work in their genre group. Over the course of the semester, one major work is written and contributed to the e-journal, The Quarry. Students have an opportunity to join the small editorial team for that issue.
In the second module, pathways to publication/production, the focus is on graduate opportunities. Lecturers and industry professionals discuss their particular industry and professional experiences, with a week given over to identifying each student's skills and attributes relevant to employment in the arts and media industries.
These modules prepare students for the final module, writing for publication/production, during which students revise, edit and proof their work for publication in The Quarry.
