WRT3112 Community Writing
Credit Points: 15

This unit explores the concept, function, and potential of Community Writing by considering some of its social and political implications as well as the roles of significant cultural groups and organisations.  Students acquire skills and knowledge that will help them to act as resource persons for other writers.  By participating in various practical activities, such as presenting writing workshops, producing a class anthology, and undertaking research/work experience, they practise several kinds of writing (e.g. poetry, fiction, publicity flyers, letters, articles, reports, speeches) and gain experience working as part of a team in the service of others.
