Writing Contemporary Fiction (7119LHS)

Gain an advanced qualification in creative writing by studying themes and issues in current international writing through a selection of award-winning creative works from around the world. Forms such as the novel, novella, short story, memoir, poetry and experimental narrative may be included in the repertoire of readings you'll encounter in this course. There will be a selection of books to buy, with a variety of online resources provided via the course website. These are explored through critical reading and as a basis for your own expressive writing practice. We will investigate issues such as the importance of culture, identity and place for writers in an international context. We'll also study a range of practice-based concerns for writers, including techniques of textual production, literary interpretation, and the impact of digital publishing in the global arena. As part of the Graduate Certificate in Creative and Professional Writing, this course contributes to a professional qualification for those who wish to pursue advanced skills in creative written communication, or who may be interested in undertaking higher degree studies in public relations, writing and journalism. The central aim of the course is to provide a lively and supportive framework through which students have the opportunity to gain deeper knowledge and understanding of the field.
