This subject encourages an innovative and experimental approach to writing. The laboratory is an environment that enables students to link concepts and practices. The subject is focused on inquiry as well as practice, to encourage critical reflection on creativity in an evolving publishing environment. It explores key questions and texts from cultural, critical and literary debates, stressing ideas about contemporary experience. Students may compose in any medium or form they choose, to develop a written project for their main assessment task: fiction, non-fiction, screenwriting, graphic or multimedia, poetry, philosophical or fictocritical writing, or other innovative forms. This subject considers the design as well as the content of writing, and students are asked to practise innovative and non-traditional ways of presenting or delivering written work that is also of a professional standard.
