This module explores the methods for, and modes of, writing creatively in shorter forms, such as the short story, the novella, and poetry. Works by published authors discussed in class will include a variety of examples in these genres; students will be asked to analyse such elements as imagery and figurative language, structure, diction, characterisation, and development, from critical and theoretical as well as practical angles. A series of writing exercises will focus on developing particular aspects of craft and technique, such as devising effective beginning and endings, creating evocative settings, introducing characters, and revising productively. Students will have the opportunity to write in prose, poetry, or both. Class sessions will require the active participation of students, with the tutor as leader and facilitator.
