Manuscript Project (Half Year, Part A) - CWPG826

In this unit, together with CWPG827, students write a 25,000 word creative manuscript (or equivalent in the case of poetry), which may be a complete work, or part of a longer work. The unit provides an opportunity for a sustained piece of writing, with students work independently with regular feedback from their supervisor meeting regularly throughout the semester. It is expected that the final work is aligned with a publishable standard. The manuscript is assessed by two readers, one of whom is usually a professional writer writing in a relevant genre.

This unit is the Half Year, Part A option available to students commencing in S2, or who need to complete the Manuscript Project with a break between semesters. This should be discussed prior to enrolment with the convenor of the unit. In this Half Year, Part A unit, students commence their creative thesis. At the end of CWPG826 students will have made considerable progress on their manuscript, however there is no final marking or grade given for this unit until completion of the manuscript during CWPG827. To complete the Manuscript Project in the Half Year mode, both units must be undertaken. CWPG826 is a 4 credit point unit; CWPG827 is an 8 credit point unit; together the two units are equivalent to the 12 credit point CWPG825 (Full Year option).
