    This unit teaches students how to edit their own work through close comparison of draft and final versions of classic works by major writers.

    Each book read is accompanied by a study of first and other drafts. Students are expected to conduct independent research into these materials, to find authorial changes and to theorise why they were made. They are also required to work on the editing of their own compositions over the course of the semester. This will provide them with the chance to put into practice lessons from the edits they have studied.

    This unit combines research and practical skills as a way of engaging students in intense thinking about artistic judgement.

    1. be able to make informed revisions to their own creative writing;
