Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items
For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.
While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

This unit is about achieving more control of your writing. By looking closely at how dialogue, paragraphs and sentences work, you will develop the capacity to identify problems and solutions in a variety of literary forms. The second half of the unit complements this tools-based approach by comparing initial and final drafts of some key modern works of genre fiction, short story and poetry. The idea is to find strategies to draw on from those examples as well. Reflecting upon how and what to revise, students will gain the skills and confidence to craft their initial drafts into enjoyable and compelling reading.
After successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
1. Develop and apply a critical vocabulary to explain how creative writing works;
2. Identify problems and solutions in their own and others? creative writing responses; and
3. Apply practical research skills for investigating writing processes to improve their own work.
