Content

This unit offers students the opportunity to explore advanced fiction-writing and editing skills by producing content for, and then compiling, an online anthology. In the fiction-writing component, we focus on innovations, ideas and the importance of observation in writing. The editing component focuses on the selection of content for an anthology; structuring, designing and marketing a publication for a specific readership; and applying legal principles to publication decisions. At the end of the unit, students will have a sampler of their written and/or edited work in the form of an online anthology.
