This unit provides an opportunity for aspiring creative writers to continue to develop their creative practice and produce
polished works of prose fiction. Students may choose to expand the suite of short fiction produced in Creative Writing 1, or
develop a single long story. Alternatively, the work produced in this unit may constitute part of a larger work, completed
through participation in Creative Writing 1.
A supportive workshop environment will be the setting for discussions of relevant issues, such as planning, drafting,
editing and opportunities for publication. Works-in-progress will be read and discussed in the workshop forum, and critical
feedback will be formalised through a roster of in-class critiques of peer work.
ASSESSMENT: Portfolio (comprising 15,000 words prose fiction, 80%, and in-class critique, 20%),
TEACHING PATTERN: Workshops totalling 10 hours, plus directed learning. This should include an average of
20 hours per week of writing and 2 hours per week of reading.
