Interesting subject, but struggles with finding coherence due to the turnstile nature of the lecturers. That is, the lecturers only lecture for a short amount of time on a particular concept, and then are replaced by another lecturer. These lecturers are often prominent authors or scholars affiliated with the university. While their insight is helpful, the subject itself is disjointed, and for this reason often difficult to follow. Yet, this subject covers important fundamentals of short fiction writing, and the assessments are fun and engaging.

Don't do this subject unless you've got an idea in your head about a short story you'd like to write. It's a good way to improve your writing and expose yourself to some great, classic short fiction writers (e.g. Hemingway, Carver, Chekhov) and low time commitment given you've got a good idea. Only two major assessments, which are both due at the end of the semester.

This subject is really fun, I really enjoyed the tutorials and the feedback I got for my writing. Recommend for anyone who wants to improve writing but not as a first time creative writing subject.

Totally dependent upon your tutor as to how valuable you find this subject, and to a lesser extent your tutorial class too as there is a lot of discussion of both the readings and the student piece being workshopped. I didn't particularly find the readings that valuable (but I am a science student, so we aren't exactly accustomed to being made to read stuff each week), but the discussions were generally interesting- especially the workshopping (of both your own and others pieces).
