Aims and objectives

This unit allows students to develop advanced writing techniques and creative artefact planning skills through the production of a major piece of work for publication. It will also extend students’ knowledge about a range of writing genres and insights into the writing process. It exposes students to the many different approaches to the practice of writing by critically appraising a range of writing practitioners and published works. It will also further develop and apply critical, theoretical and reflective understandings through the frame of practice-led research to assist in the development of a student’s own folio of original work.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO) 
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:

1. Evaluate and critically reflect on a range of complex creative techniques, methodologies, and theoretical approaches to undertaking and completing a substantial research-based project.
2. Demonstrate a high level of creative and practical skill, including peer-based analysis, in the staged and autonomous production of their chosen form of artefact, from outline to practice-led research, to structural development, to finished prose.
3. Generate a substantial research-based creative project, and produce and evaluate reflexive theorisations about their practice and project and the practice and projects of others.
