About this course

The Diploma of Creative and Indigenous Writing will strengthen your skills in using writing to express yourself creatively and is an opportunity to learn something new without committing to a full degree. In this course you will develop your writing style in a variety of genres, and strengthen your knowledge of Indigenous expressive culture through an understanding of Indigenous and non-Indigenous writing traditions. The course introduces you to creative literature in key areas, such as short story writing, poetry, writing for stage and short film, and personal narratives. You will focus on how Indigenous peoples in Australia and elsewhere use these genres as tools to share stories about their history, and how the modern world impacts the culture in a dominant non-Indigenous society.
