Course Description

Creative writing can make people laugh, cry, think from a new perspective and even shape the world. In this course you’ll explore literary forms from the short story to the sonnet, from the blog to the bildungsroman, and from pastoral to performance poetry.

Learn from scholars and established writers, ranging from short story writers and novelists who have published major works, to drama practitioners and performance theorists, and experts in English and Comparative Literature.

Develop your skills in becoming an insightful thinker, an observant reader and an imaginative writer. Explore a wide range of literary, theoretical, dramatic, and other texts, from the Renaissance to the present day, and develop your capacity for reflection and analysis.

You’ll learn to write in a range of literary and related genres and learn to think critically and creatively, apply knowledge and information, and communicate effectively.
