The defining feature of the course is the particular close attention it gives to the details of the writing process; the teaching goes beyond a simple textbook approach to writing technique and encourages students to take a strategic approach to producing successful work; this involves examining their writing in the contexts of: how their writing is informed by reading; what they see as their long- and short-term aims for their writing; how the publishing industry works; their relations with other writers, particularly their peers on the course.
