CWR2002 Creative Writing 3
Pre-requisite: CWR1000 and CWR2001
Students will require access to e-mail and have internet access to UConnect for this course.
This course builds on and extends basic writing skills acquired in CWR1000 and CWR2001. A workshop based approach to learning encourages creative collaboration and communal engagement with the challenges of crafting a piece of writing. As public communicators, skilled writers are conscious of the context and purpose of all forms of writing: this consciousness is central to the teaching and learning process. There is an emphasis on the relationship between writing and reading, with particular attention to techniques used by skilled writers in different media, including websites, radio, video, print journalism and fiction. Assignments are designed to focus on writing as a continuing personal discipline with incremental skills.
