Field of Study:English Creative Writing
Description:The diploma in creative writing aims to develop students' skills in writing in a variety of genres conventionally described as “creative,” such as fiction, poetry, drama, and creative non-fiction. It will also offer you the opportunity to take, as options, courses that provide a background in contemporary literature in these genres. The overall aim of the program is to help you produce work that merits publication. To this end, the focus of the creative writing courses will be on the composition, critiquing, and editing of your own work, and, in both the creative writing and contemporary literature courses, on analyzing examples of excellent contemporary writing.

Interested students should note that admission to individual creative writing courses is competitive and administered via the portfolio system.
