Master of Writing for Performance

1 year full time
Southbank campus
Available to Domestic and International
Course CRICOS code:075502B

The one-year Master of Writing for Performance focuses on developing the skills and emerging aesthetic of the individual and collaborative writer for diverse forms of contemporary live performance.

Through a combination of writing workshops, critical seminars, and discussions you will develop skills in writing for the diverse contexts in which live performance can be made, alongside a deeper understanding of the relationship between the playwright and the cultural contexts within which they write.

The course focuses on contemporary writing in both Australia and overseas, but with particular attention to a new diversity of voices and cultures in Australian writing. You are also equipped with research skills for developing and reflecting on your own work as well as that of others, and the academic writing skills to articulate your own practice in the context of contemporary cultural and performance theory.
