Writing (Imaginative Practice)

The course offers a mixed-genre approach to writing, allowing students to hone their writing through critical creative practice; the programme combines the strengths of many programmes (theatre studies, film, creative writing, music cultures) allowing students fertile ground for experimentation and the possibility to break out of old forms and traditional restrictions; the course focuses on new writing: expanding personal frontiers and creating hybrid forms, and places an emphasis on producing work for publication/performance/production that expresses contemporary writing.
