Back at University
I started back at University today for the second semester for this academic year. For new readers to my blog I am currently a quarter of the way through doing my Master of Arts in Creative writing course at Tabor College in Adelaide, South Australia.
This semester I am studying three units as follows:
- Themes in Australian Literature
- Writing Prose
- Writing Poetry
The first lecture today was on Australian Literature and was necessarily an introductory type session. Looking through the lists of texts and topics to be studied I am sure that I will enjoy this unit. It will require plenty of reading as well as writing assignments.
I have to complete three assignments as follows:
- A tutorial paper of 1500 words
- A major essay of 3000 words
- A reflective journal on the reading I do during the unit of study – this is to be a minimum of 2000 words.
I plan to reflect on my studies on this blog – as time allows. Last semester I had intended doing this too, but the intensive nature of study tended to get in the way of too much blogging. We will see.
In the meantime – good writing.
