Writing in the Bachelor of Arts promotes the type of creative learning needed by cutting-edge writers in a broad range of writing genres, both fiction and creative nonfiction, and by innovative, risk-taking graduates seeking to thrive in a changing world. Graduates trained in the humanities learn to play with big concepts, to apply new ways of thinking to difficult problems that can't be analysed in conventional ways and to negotiate ambiguity and complexity, innovation, communication and presentation.
The supportive learning environment inspires and encourages students to explore avenues for promoting and publishing their works. Students have had work published in a range of journals including Wet Ink, Islet, Griffith Review, Kurungabaa, Northerly, M/C and newspapers such as The Northern Star, The Weekend Australian, The Byron Shire Echo and The Sydney Morning Herald. They have won residencies at Varuna and places in poetry competitions such as Salt on Your Tongue, Nimbin Performance Poetry World Cup and Lismore Poetry Cup. They have book-length works in a range of genres published with HarperCollins, Random House, New Holland and Allen & Unwin.
