The Graduate Diploma in Creative Writing from University of Technology Sydney is a good starting point for early career writers who want to develop craft skills in a range of genres and forms, and who may later develop a major project through the articulated Master of Arts in Creative Writing.
The aims of this degree are:
- to enhance students’ knowledge and skills across a range of writing genres and forms,
- to facilitate in students an ability to critically reflect on and improve their work,
- to introduce students to the relationship between writing practice and the writing industry across a range of project types and contexts, and
- to encourage students to reflect on the role of the writer in the creative and cultural industries.
Graduates apply their writing skills to fields such as advertising, editing and publishing, film and television, digital and experiential media, journalism and communications. Graduates start to have their work published or produced. Many graduates articulate into the Master of Arts in Creative Writing.
