Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The main purposes of this module are to enable students to develop their practical and creative skills in a specific genre, and also their critical skills in exploring the aims and processes involved in their work and that of notable practitioners. They will also gain critical insights into the work of other contemporary writers and the processes of literary production. The module will assist the student in: 1. Producing a portfolio of creative writing; 2. examining critical concepts and practice in a genre of fiction or poetry or stage-writing or screen-writing; 3. understanding, through practice and discussion, the research needed for a larger scale creative work, and the structures and styles necessary for executing such a work; 4. conceptualising the student's own practice as a writer in relation to other writers' work and practice.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module, students will be able to: demonstrate a practical and critical knowledge of one of the following genres in terms of subject, appropriate research, synthesis of materials, language, genre, form, narrative, character, and description, and of representative examples by published writers, namely: poetry, fiction, stage-writing and screen-writing.

Timetabled teaching activities

The module is delivered via a series of one-to-one discussions (at least three times a term).
