The course is taught through both individual and group development; students become part of a writers' group, providing peer support in developing their writing; theatre journalism work and submission of readers' reports on new scripts for performances in different media; projects that test and develop the student’s capacities as a writer (including: writing a treatment for a television series; a short script for a staged reading; a short film and a developed script for theatre production); the role of the writer in current production processes; one or more alternative modes of writing (writing live; writing advertisements; and writing for non-verbal performance); commissioning and production protocols in different media; this practice-based work is complemented by individual study, and by appropriate theoretical discussion and enquiry addressing historical, ideological and critical contexts within which traditions of writing have evolved.
