Subject Description
This subject examines the interactions between creative practice and critical ideas that provoke and extend the possibilities of writing. It provides writers with an opportunity to consider how we might use theories about writing to strengthen our practice and also to question the process and production of writing. In this subject we will analyse key critical ideas about writing, evaluate their efficacy, and reflect on the cultural and ethical implications of textual production. We will apply them to specific creative texts, including our own.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Recognise key concepts and functions of specific critical ideas about writing practice
2. Assess the implications of these ideas in relation to literary production and formulate critical responses to the theories
3. Apply analysis of critical thinking to their own writing practice
4. Extend their critical reading skills and develop sophisticated arguments that are substantiated by evidence from appropriate creative and scholarly material
5. Collaborate with peers in a range of forums to develop creative and scholarly responses to literary texts
