The Writing (Creative Media) minor is designed for students who enjoy writing and are interested in developing and consolidating their writing skills and experience. As part of this minor, students will extend their practical and analytical writing skills and their understanding of theoretical concepts, in the area of creative and professional writing. Lectures and practical writing workshops give students an opportunity to employ a range of writing genres, including fiction writing, memoir, scriptwriting, journalism and children’s literature. All units balance the practical development of expertise in writing, and analysis of the writing of others, within a broader social and cultural context. The approach to the field of creative writing utilises a combination of face-to-face, blended learning and creative based practicum; students are encouraged to take up an industry-focused 'work-ready' approach to writing.
