Reviews and tips for CWRI10001

Boring lectures and tutorials. Getting to workshop your writing, however, was quite useful.

Interesting subject, but not a good one. Lectures are very unimportant since all the advices are very general and guest lecturers mostly talk about their own writings only. Scoring is really subjective since only your tutor score it (especially because it is a very subjective subject)

Chill subject which encourages you to just get on with writing. I had no real issue with the lectures, though they definitely aren't necessary. If you treat them more as potential sources of inspiration than solid teaching they can be quite interesting. My tutor was lovely, but I did hear horror stories about some others. Your enjoyment of the subject will definitely depend on this, don't be afraid to swap out your class if you don't like the tutor.

The workshops were objectively the best part of this subject. I had a great tutor, we studied a myriad of interesting pieces, and I thoroughly enjoyed the quick writing exercises we did. Workshopping your writing was the most useful aspect of the subject. It was so helpful to hear what other writers thought about your piece. The feedback I got from my tutor was also useful and confirmed suspicions about the flaws in my own work, which was nice. The idea of bringing successful writers into the lectures to talk about their processes was good, but some writers talked only about their own work, and didn't give a lot of tips on how we could improve. Another thing that annoyed me is that the subject coordinator makes you buy a hard-copy of the subject reader, and is really uptight and rude about it. I understand why a hard-copy is better, but for those of us struggling with money already, it's kind of a dick move. Also, your success is highly dependant to your tutor's personal bias. I think if they introduced cross-marking between the tutors, students would have a much more objective criticism of their work. I found this subject very useful for my own writing but I can see why others wouldn't. Nonetheless, I'd still recommend this subject to writers looking to improve.

Amazing subject, horrendous lecturers and tutors. The lectures are boring and not even relevant as the tutorials cover everything anyway. Grant, the coordinator and main lecturer, is pompous and boring with the absolute worst jokes. I've heard mixed reviews on the tutors. My tutor, Grace, was a cold bitch that offered no help whatsoever, and criticised every single student's work without leaving any room for improvement. However, I have heard that other tutors are much more supportive. The subject itself is fun and quirky, and perfect for anyone who enjoys creative literacy. The assignments weren't too difficult at all, the workload is easily manageable and you make some great friends.
