Build industry experience through internships at publishing houses and festivals or spend a year on the editorial team of Deakin's own international writing and creative arts journal, Verandah, honing your writing and editing skills alongside aspiring professional creatives like you. Under the guidance of teachers who are published writers themselves, you'll explore many genres of writing, including short and extended fiction, creative nonfiction, digital approaches, poetry and script writing. Collaborate and improve your skills working with peers in interdisciplinary teams for writing, film, drama and new technologies. You’ll be supported to identify and pursue opportunities for writing and editing in new media, cross-genre experimentation and creative production with an awareness of entrepreneurial initiative and know-how. Work on studio projects to develop and extend your style and craft and undertake creative research work, producing professional-standard publications for web and print before you graduate. We also encourage you to pursue opportunities for writing and editing in new media, including for our own international writing journal, Verandah.
