Advanced Creative Writing
This module offers final year students the opportunity to do research-led writing based on Sydney topics and themes. Using a range of research techniques (archival research, interviews, digital networking, use of recording and mobile phone technologies) students will gather original materials which will shape their own creative responses.
The module is an advanced creative writing course. Students are encouraged to carry out original research on Sydney as a locality. Lectures will deliver examples of literary and cultural studies of Sydney, the theory and practice of object-oriented writing, theories of topographic writing as a branch of nature writing, and understandings of ecological or non-human-centred writing.
