Monash provides specialised training in the practice of creative writing, offering subjects in fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction. We survey the history and theory of a variety of literary genres, providing a comprehensive education in the field. In collaborative workshops, students are encouraged to experiment across a range of stylistic models, developing professional skills as both writers and editors. Our lecturers are accomplished authors with extensive industry experience, who can provide unique opportunities for you to advance your work and engage with acclaimed writers from around the world. The short stories, poetry and literary essays of our students appear in Australia’s leading literary magazines, as well as in Monash’s own specialist journal, Verge.
