Storytelling is an integral part of life. AUT's Master of Creative Writing embraces the multiple modes through which storytelling can occur, including not just novels and short stories but writing for the screen, graphic novels, and multimedia texts.
The Master of Creative Writing is the centrepiece of the AUT Centre for Creative Writing. As a Master of Creative Writing student, you take part in masterclasses led by experienced mentors who are among the most accomplished writers and creative writing tutors in the country.
The Master of Creative Writing for Scriptwriters offers dedicated masterclasses and industry-style script development pods for writers who want to bring their ideas to the screen.
Peer feedback and networking with industry bodies (including publishers, writers' societies and the film industry), are key components of the programme. The university also follows up with regular alumni meetings, and staff and alumni have gone on to collaborate on successful publishing initiatives.
As well as literary fiction, the university encourages high-quality work in popular genres such as young adult fiction, travel writing, biography, screenplays, graphic novels, children’s stories, narrative journalism and creative non-fiction. Poetry and experimental image/text work are also covered.
At the heart of the Master of Creative Writing is your primary creative work (or ‘thesis’). You also develop an accompanying exegesis, a short piece of written and/or multimedia work that frames your creative project as research. You work under the guidance of an experienced creative writing mentor.
