1662.21 - Workshop With Independent Reading List – Creative Writing
Workshop With Independent Reading List – Creative Writing
Students must be enrolled on the Bachelor in Creative Arts programme.
Students will acquire knowledge about theories and methods in creative writing and learn to apply this knowledge in practice.
The course will cover narrative methods, close reading, genres and other topics, which are relevant to the literary genre/form the students are working on. The course will emphasise both analysing relevant schools of theory about writing and developing own writing in practice. In this context students will compile individual independent reading lists with 5 works, which are relevant to their own creative writing. This reading list is subject to the approval of the teacher before it can be added to the materials, which may be referenced during examination.
Learning and teaching approaches
The approach used is workshop-based teaching with exercises, discussions, lectures and presentations.
Students who successfully complete the course can demonstrate ability to: - explain in detail theories and methods in creative writing - critically assess relevant theories and methods - apply relevant theories and methods in practice and assess them independently - contextualise their own writing within literary practice
Combined examination. Set take-home assignment + oral presentation.
Relevant materials will be circulated at the beginning of the course. In addition, students will draw up an independent reading list with 5 works, which will be added to the material that may be referenced during examination.
