Creative Writing

Students will take part in dynamic creative workshops where you will partner supportive tutors and work with inter-disciplinary postgraduate groups on creative projects to develop theories and practices linked to your writing. In semester 2 students will take part in the core artist in residence module where they will be asked to apply their writing and creative practice to a work place scenario whilst also being encouraged to work on specific interests and passions. Students will develop advanced writing and research skills whilst also enjoying a diverse coastal town where they will engage with a thriving creative and multi-cultural scene. They will also be asked to contribute to our established student led anthologies and open mic nights
