The Master of Creative Writing is designed to extend and challenge emerging writers to hone their craft in a small community of writers. The program's focus is on developing each student's creativity and writing skills, and to provide expert training for students aiming for professional publication. Students are encouraged to experiment, hone their craft, and to develop a technical vocabulary for critiquing their own work and the work of others. Specialist units in the degree engage with novel and short story writing, creative nonfiction (such as memoir, writing about place, personal essay), poetry, writing for young adults, and manuscript development. Students can also select units from the Master of Children's Literature. For those wishing to pathway to higher degree study, the degree can be credited towards a Masters in Research leading to a PhD.
