You will begin building your professional writing and editing skills. Through writing fiction and non-fiction you will explore story and structure, research and readership, and learn how to build a strong narrative. You will develop a solid grounding in the use of language, grammar and punctuation, which will assist your writing and inform your studies in copyediting and proofreading.
In applying these skills, you will develop concepts for a range of projects and study the principles and practice of writing for different audiences. You will learn to use industry-standard software to manipulate text and images, and through your electives you will explore specialist writing areas.
You will be offered a wide choice of writing and editing electives and the opportunity to further develop your writing projects, learning how to polish and pitch them for publication. You will also have the option of working with others in editing and publishing roles.
You will explore ways of creating content for digital media and can choose to complete an industry placement. By organising and attending industry forums and investigating a self-directed research topic, you will increase your broader professional knowledge, skills and networks.
