Overview

If you dream of building a career as a professional writer, or have an active imagination and a way with words, you will develop and refine your writing skills with USQ’s Creative and Critical Writing major. 

You will learn the foundations of writing effective and engaging prose, and once you have the basics, you’ll experiment with a number of different forms, genres, and styles. You’ll learn how to transform your story ideas into compelling works of fiction and non-fiction, and you’ll discover how to prepare your work for editing and publication.

USQ Creative and Critical Writing students have the opportunity to produce online and print publications, and to work closely with other writers, editors, and publishers. By the end of your studies, you’ll have the skills and knowledge required to work in a constantly changing industry.

Creative and Critical Writing students often combine their studies with English Literature, History, Anthropology, Journalism, and Contemporary Media Studies.
