Bachelor of Fine Arts - Creative Writing

Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

The digital revolution means that people are now willing to give everything just a few precious seconds before they decide whether or not to keep reading or listening. That means we must choose our words wisely. And we must turn to the wordsmiths who can provoke, entertain and connect to audiences in new and exciting ways. Students will work intensively on their writing in a number of forms and genres including novels, short stories, creative non-fiction, memoir, genre writing, poetry, digital media, editing, and new and emergent styles. In addition, they will build specialist writing skills for professional applications via deep engagement with industry contexts. They can also undertake project work to writing a sustained work in a genre of their choice. Students will graduate with advanced writing and communication capabilities as well as analytic and editorial experience. These are rare, real-world skills that are keenly sought by employers.
