Subject Description
This subject focuses on writing across borders. It facilitates story production that crosses different cultures and worldviews, and creative and critical approaches informed by writing techniques involving image, structure, voice, style, theme, and the fact-to-fiction transition. Students will explore a range of border-crossing approaches and techniques, while critically reflecting on the aesthetic, ethical, political implications/underpinnings of the creative process.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. cross creative and cultural borders in story production
2. critically interrogate the aesthetics, ethics and politics of this crossing
3. creatively and critically negotiate the border-crossing between fact and fiction
4. employ crafting techniques involving image, structure, voice, style, theme and fact-to-fiction transitions in order to cross creative, critical and cultural borders
5. experiment with border-crossing approaches
6. rigorously craft text while employing border-crossing approaches
7. work incrementally in story production to: 1) build on accumulated creative-critical knowledge and skills to write new texts, and 2) cumulatively build on writing exercises to write the final assessment task
