Writing for Publication - WRITE501 (2020)

Writing for Publication will focus on writing for professional publication, examining the modes, standards and practices associated with different forms of published output. Students will read examples from a variety of fields, including fiction and creative non-fiction, writing for advertising and digital media, and scholarly/academic writing. They will consider what makes effective writing in each genre, and the professional and ethical standards that need to be met prior to publication. WRITE501 will address practical questions covering transferrable skills in professional writing, including research, drafting, editing and proof-reading; it will also address some of the ethical issues professional writers may encounter in their working lives, including privacy, libel, informed consent and the appropriate use of research materials. Students will complete two stand-alone writing projects, researching potential venues for their work and preparing their writing to publishable standard.
