Innovative Writing Certification - English Department
Certificate in Innovative Writing is a one-of-a-kind way of studying writing creativity that links the practical aspects of writing intimately with questions of literature and aesthetics. Undergraduates of the certificate also obtain an MA in English or a related subject. The programme provides a collaboration area in which we think about the ethic and policy implication of writing creatively within the array of the world' s citizens, reveal obvious and unclear relationships between modern and historic writings, consider how esthetic issues are influenced by different regimes of authority, and develop strict, sensual, controversial and above all evolutionary writing styles that represent visionary and forward-looking policies.
It is our hopes to provide an enviroment in which new ways of writing thrive. Hybride shapes. However, we are innovating. The writing studios and literary courses in the Certificate in Innovative Writing are shaped by the long tradition of UB art innovations and are based on the common conviction of our department that writing deals with the world in which we live, as well as with the world in which we represent and carry out - and that writing is a process of critically confrontation, innovative thinking, frenzied speculations, intricate, often contradictory emotions, diverse, interconnected mediums, and societal cycles, different temporal perception and a constant interpretation of arsenal.
This certificate encourages you to consider writing as an independent, researching process: a kind of investigation that can at best express and reformulate different cultural experience of the 21st centuries, identifying our most basic thoughts, perhaps even overthrowing them to liberate them for a deep, creative work. The Innovative Writing Certificate Programme immerses you in a mentoring fellowship of lecturers and their work.
It is our goal to build a writing style that is awakened through discussions with a group of contributors and creators to provide our authors with circumstances under which they can start writing what they might not have been able to do on their own. Especially to give the pupils the ability to continue writing long after leaving the workshops.
