General Information

Overview

The writing project is the final unit in the writing plan. The focus of the project will be in providing practical experience in the invention, composition and revision of a writing project designated as either professional or creative writing. You will be expected to produce work of a publishable standard, and will be encouraged to find a print or online publication outlet - journal, magazine, newspaper - and submit your project for consideration. You will be expected to reflect on your project and to demonstrate, through a weblog, knowledge of how professional and creative writing works. You will demonstrate advanced writing skills, as well as the ability to collect, analyse, organize and present ideas and information in creative and/ or professional ways.

Feedback from Student feedback

Feedback

Word count for creative piece was limiting

Recommendation

Either make it clearer that the word count asks for an 'excerpt' and the writing project can be longer, or increase the word count to a more recognisable length (say 3000 words) to allow students to submit a complete short story.
