If you would like to express yourself creatively through writing, then this major will allow you to explore a variety of creative writing styles, such as fiction, poetry, and writing for performance, as well as range of emerging and experimental genres.

The program encourages experimentation and creativity and stimulates critical awareness through discussion of relevant theory. Students also develop all the relevant professional skills required of an author in the digital age. You will benefit from the professional advice and support of a range of published and awarded authors on staff, and through critical engagement with a talented peer group. Many students also gain their first publication through the School’s online journal, Sitelines.

Humanities Associate Professor, Kim Scott, is recognised as one of Australia’s top literary talents and won the prestigious 2011 Miles Franklin Literary Award for his novel, That Deadman Dance.

Creative writing is offered as part of the Bachelor of Arts. You can enhance your studies with a secondary major or choose from a range of elective units to support your career goals.

When coupled with Advertising you can complete this major as part of our Bachelor of Arts or our Bachelor of Commerce. Your choice will determine your core units.

You can study this as part of a double major:
