This subject is designed for students who are interested in exploring writing both creatively and critically. The aim of this subject is to help students develop their own skills and knowledge as creative writers. It will do this in two ways:
- via a series of lectures on key theoretical issues to do with writing, such as the historical identity of the writer, the nature of narrative, the relationship between writing and subjectivity and the representation of truth
- via workshopping students’ writing projects.
