Creative Writing

The course equips students with the ability to hone their writing skills and to develop areas of creativity at an advanced level, while the practical benefits offered by the schemes enables students to pursue careers as professional writers, editors and publishers as well as those roles which command an excellent command of language; a focus on the ability to communicate clearly through precise language prepares students for a range of careers, from writing-based advertising or journalism, to related professions such as publishing, publicity or arts administration; students also become able to apply the knowledge and skills acquired on the courses to teach others these skills, whether it be in schools, colleges or in the community.
