Creative Writing Seminar II - CWPG811

This unit offers students the opportunity to develop their writing across one or more genres, and to extend their skills both in the crafting and the analysis of the craft of writing. Two modules specifically cover poetry and writing for children. For students who have completed CWPG810, this unit is an opportunity to develop on the work achieved in that unit; for other students this unit offers key concepts and practices that will be extended by future study in CWPG810. Students reflect upon and interrogate their writing and writing process, explore new methods in relation to craft and technique or genre, and link this work to consideration of published creative works and contemporary narrative studies. Writing workshops and discussion of the readings are structured so that students can make productive links between concepts in narrative studies and their own writing. The unit is assessed through creative writing assignments, writing exercises and tasks, participation in weekly writing workshops, and the reading, analysis and discussion of critical and creative texts.
