The constant need for content in print, digital, film, and broadcast media means that writers are in greater demand than ever before. This course aims to build on the skills developed in the Graduate Certificate of Arts (Writing) in order to further specialise student’s skills to an industry ready level in preparation for creative, professional, and academic publication opportunities. Graduates will have advanced knowledge of industry and creative practices and be able to critically apply this knowledge and skills across a range of specialisations in the field of professional and creative writing. The Graduate Diploma of Writing forms the second stage in a three-stage nested suite of programs consisting of Graduate Certificate of Writing (GC-WRI), Graduate Diploma of Writing (GD-WRI) and Master of Writing (MA-WRI).


To qualify for the Graduate Diploma of Writing, a student must complete 100 credit points of 8 core units.
