This unit requires you to write a substantial creative piece accompanied by an exegesis which will be completed in HUMT20017: Research Dissertation Creative Writing B, that is, the dissertation is the one sustained project not two separate term projects. The topic will be negotiated with a supervisor. The creative piece may be either Fiction, Poetry, Drama or any other approved mix and will be accompanied by a theoretically informed exegesis (critical commentary) of a combined length totaling 15 000–20 000 words. The creative piece will be expected to reflect a high level synthesis and stylistic application of the writing skills you have acquired through HUMT20012: Elements of Creative Writing I, HUMT20013: Elements of Creative Writing II, HUMT20014: Writing Short Fiction, and HUMT20015: Writing Poetry and Short Dramatic Pieces. The Dissertation will be formatted using Harvard Author-Date Referencing Style.
