Permission by special approval
No special requirements
In this unit, continuing on from work undertaken in ENGX8026, students complete a 25,000 word creative manuscript (or equivalent in the case of poetry), which may be a complete work, or part of a longer work. The unit is suitable for experienced writers undertaking a sustained piece of writing. You work independently with regular feedback from a writing supervisor, meeting regularly throughout the semester. The completed manuscript is assessed by two readers, one of whom is usually a professional writer writing in a relevant genre. To complete the Manuscript Project in the Half Year mode, both units must be undertaken.
