This unit develops skills and knowledge for writing short prose fiction, and creative writing more generally, using a workshopping process. Students will read, analyse and discuss a range of short stories and literary fiction, including work by Australian authors, and develop an understanding of the practice and techniques of writing short fiction. In addition, they will engage in a variety of writing exercises, individually and in groups, to develop their skills as creative writers. Students will be encouraged to read their own writing in small group discussions and offer comment and feedback on the writing of their peers in group workshops or online forums.
