Creative Writing: Concept and Craft HEN204

Introduction

To produce successful fiction, a writer needs not only to have great ideas but also to have the skill to bring those ideas alive on the page. In this unit, students are encouraged to work on their capacity for imagination and originality, and on developing their proficiency in the craft of writing. The reading program for the unit requires students to engage with a range of genres, and a craft analysis assessment enables students to focus on the aspects of writing that are most relevant to their own creative practice. Workshops provide a space in which students give and receive constructive criticism.
