Course description

Creative Writing: Advanced

This course is designed for those firmly committed to their writing as a hobby or as a career. Writers may have a writing project or projects they wish to work on for the duration of the course. Participants with no specific project may wish to spend the early weeks finalizing their choice of project. Each week, writers can submit sections for workshop and discussion. Projects can be in any genre or medium. Course also includes discussion of songwriting, romance fiction, multiform, video-game writing, writing for the internet and commercial script writing along with elements of writing craft. Alumni of other MKCW courses very welcome. Includes post-course editorial of a complete industry sample or equivalent (up to 10,000 words).
