A command of narrative is a fundamental skill for writers and editors and is recognised as essential in many other practices. In this practice-based subject, students develop their understanding and practice of the art of storytelling across a range of traditions, genres, and platforms. Students study theories and techniques of creativity, analyse narrative works and their contexts, practise key conventions of plot, character and dramatic structure and workshop concepts into sustained creative work. Students develop an understanding of the possibilities of storytelling as technologies and ways of reaching audiences change.
