Literature and Writing in Professional Contexts - ENGL875

The unit promotes professional writing and research skills through the production of scholarly and/or creative projects in the fields of Children’s Literature and Creative Writing. Students demonstrate the advanced learning, skills and knowledge gained in their prior and concurrent Masters program studies through the application of their learning in a major project. Independent study is required, and students negotiate an individual curriculum.

In consultation with the unit convenors, each student designs a research-based or creative writing project, working individually or collaboratively to completion. Involvement in industry is encouraged, and projects might include the production of a paper for journal publication, journal editing and production, a conference paper presentation, or curriculum and assessment design.

The aims and context for the major project will complement and extend each student’s individual research and vocational aims. The final works are showcased in professional contexts, such as journal publication or the application of the new curriculum in a school setting.
