Creative Writing and Literature
Learning to write begins with reading.
We understand written content is at the heart of popular culture and the economy. We also know the value of literature as a model in developing your own writing. That’s why we offer creative writing and literature at Swinburne.
Creative writing and literature is an opportunity to explore diverse examples of literature – both as readers and writers. We provide these texts as examples for creating your own stories in various genres and forms. You’ll also develop expertise in the art of writing and critique.
Study a Bachelor of Arts and take part in the Grand Challenges final-year project where you can explore innovative solutions to contemporary issues facing society.

Conducted in collaboration with the Centre for Urban Transitions, the Grand Challenges project will hone your research and teamwork skills and sharpen your confidence.
