The rapid pace of change in the ways in which information is accessed, utilised and converted into knowledge means that there is a growing need for graduates with both traditional and electronic professional and creative writing skills. The goal of Swinburne's writing programs is to draw together print and performance-based texts, while exploring the local and global opportunities of electronic media.

The writing suite of programs builds on the expertise of Swinburne academics in areas including creative writing, electronic writing, information management, eCommunications and writing for learning technologies.
