Writing for Production and Publication - ENGX390

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 Macquarie University's creative writing e-journal, The Quarry. 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 or poetry, workshopping a creative work in their genre group. Over the course of the semester, smaller assignments are scaffolded into the production of one major written work. 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. These modules prepare students for the final module, writing for publication/production, during which students revise, edit and proof their work for potential publication in The Quarry.
