Course summary

Develop the skills to forge a successful career in business, publishing, media communications and the arts. You’ll learn to write fiction, magazine features and marketing copy for a range of competitive and fast-moving industries.

Introduction

Immerse yourself in the literary world as part of a lively community of fellow writers and visiting speakers. Learning from working industry professionals, you’ll develop skills like genre writing, narrative structure, research and self-promotion. You’ll also learn to create compelling narratives and voices, then apply these techniques to your specialism. Graduating with a portfolio and an accomplished working style, you’ll emerge primed to tackle the industry head-on.

What our graduates do

Our graduates have become published authors, and taken on roles like deputy editor, full-time playwright, psychologist, feature writer and entertainment journalist.

What you'll learn

On top of their regular learning, our students have placed work in local and national publications, and secured placements and ongoing work with leading publishers, media organisations, copywriting agencies, magazines and newspapers.

How you'll learn

This 45-week course covers 3 study blocks and brings together seminars, lectures, real-world briefs, practical workshops and your own self-managed work. You'll work individually and in teams - collaborating with other media professionals, developing your own projects and business ideas, and giving and receiving feedback.
