Brief Description

The purpose of this module is to enable the student to continue to construct an independent project composed of a critical and creative element in their medium of choice. Over the course of the module, the student will continue to construct, draft, edit and present a creative piece, initially developed in HM7101, and qualify the outcome of the second development phase of the creative project developed over the modules within an accompanying critical reflection. 

Indicative Syllabus

This module will run in weekly seminars. Each week, seminars will focus on different creative extracts submitted by students. The student will prepare a critique on each of the extracts and seminars will assimilate the critique. The emphasis will be placed on the craft of writing plays, poetry and prose, and the materials used will be drawn from the student’s own creative writing and other exemplars of excellence of craft. The module will offer critical reflection on the methods and purposes of the subject and/ or practice within a broader context of enquiry suitable to the output of the dissertation. Topics/themes will be chosen as necessary from (among others): basic principles of writing; generic limitations and possibilities of mediums; literary identity; stylistics, aesthetics and theme.
