About this course

New, developing and established writers who wish to explore and develop their skills will enjoy the wide offering of poetry, fiction, non-fiction and screenwriting on offer in the Master of Creative Writing. This course is also highly suited to teachers who wish to be better able to explain the processes and skills involved in creative writing, and literature scholars of all levels who wish to encounter living writers and to better understand writing processes.

You will have the opportunity to learn from renowned and award-winning authors, poets and screenwriters in the heart of Australia’s most vibrant writing and publishing community. Units range from introductory to advanced workshops and ‘meet-the-writer’ units, to more structured and academic opportunities to study contemporary movements in the writing of poetry and prose. Structuring, writing and editing skills are at the core of the degree, although the course addresses many other aspects of the writing process, from the development of ideas and finding of voice to final publication and questions concerning the role of writers and writing within society.
