Diploma in Creative Writing
The diploma in creative writing aims to develop students' skills in writing in a variety of genres conventionally described as “creative,” such as fiction, poetry, drama, and creative non-fiction. It will also offer students the opportunity to take, as options, courses that provide a background in contemporary literature in these genres. The overall aim of the program is to help students produce work that merits publication. To this end, the focus of the creative writing courses will be on the composition, critiquing, and editing of the students’ own work, and, in both the creative writing and contemporary literature courses, on analysing examples of excellent contemporary writing.
Interested students should note that admission to individual creative writing courses is competitive and administered via the portfolio system.
