About creative writing

ACU creative writing student chatting to a fellow student

Unlock your creativity through exposure to multiple forms of writing, including short stories, poetry, script writing and creative non-fiction. Make creative writing the focus of your degree and you’ll explore styles, methods and techniques and get a greater understanding of genre and writing for a range of audiences.

Develop your voice

Make the most of a supportive and encouraging environment to hone your craft. Throughout your degree you’ll be encouraged to experiment in your writing as you learn to identify and cultivate your particular voice. You’ll be taught to critically assess and edit your work and the work of others. And when you graduate you’ll have a portfolio of polished and marketable writing.
