Please note this module descriptor is indicative of the structure of this course and may be subject to change.
Over the course of the semester, the student
will undertake thorough individual research to find, or self-set, a commission
for a creative piece. Working to this brief, the student will construct a
portfolio of writing intended for submission. Alongside the creative project,
the student will submit a cover letter and appropriate documentation outlining
their creative project.
This module will be delivered through an initial
one-to-one meeting then subsequently through online workshops. The student will
locate a series of case studies of how previous emerging writers have gone on
to publish, or seek publication pathways. A commission/submission procedure
will be located and, in an online workshop setting, the student will work on
their portfolio of writing for submission.
A student passing this module should be able to:
and evaluate a range of writing contexts;
2. demonstrate specialised
understanding of the relationship
between writer and commission/submission;
3. assimilate and construct an
industry standard portfolio submission;
4. construct speciality research into a particular
area of the publishing/producing industry;
5. exhibit full engagement with
the practice of a writer.
A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.
A module is a self-contained, individual unit of study. The module descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
