JOUR13-300: Creative Writing: Fiction and Non-Fiction

Description

In this class you will have the chance to harness your creativity and explore a range of approaches, styles and genres to help you find and tell compelling stories. You will also be given industry-insider guidance on making your work compelling and saleable. This course covers the foundations of writing fiction and creative non-fiction, including: theme, character, dialogue, plot/structure, voice, style, imagery and a range of literary devices. Tutorials take the form of a supportive writing workshop where students are encouraged to experiment with a variety of approaches to help find, develop and refine their own voice. You will also learn how to critically evaluate the work of other professionals, have the chance to practice self-editing and workshopping with an editor (your tutor) and investigate ways to apply your narrative skills and techniques to other fields: from entrepreneurial storytelling to health narratives, professional narratives, social media narratives and much in between.
