This unit requires you to write a substantial creative piece accompanied by an exegesis which will be completed in HUMT20017: Research Dissertation Creative Writing B, that is, the dissertation is the one sustained project not two separate term projects. The topic will be negotiated with a supervisor. The creative piece may be either Fiction, Poetry, Drama or any other approved mix and will be accompanied by a theoretically informed exegesis (critical commentary) of a combined length totaling 15 000–20 000 words. The creative piece will be expected to reflect a high level synthesis and stylistic application of the writing skills you have acquired through HUMT20012: Elements of Creative Writing I, HUMT20013: Elements of Creative Writing II, HUMT20014: Writing Short Fiction, and HUMT20015: Writing Poetry and Short Dramatic Pieces. The Dissertation will be formatted using Harvard Author-Date Referencing Style.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified
as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa,
must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study
period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining
at least an 80% attendance record).
This unit has a website, within the Moodle system, which is available two weeks before the start of term. It is important that you visit your Moodle site throughout the term.
