Master of Arts in Creative Writing*
"I chose to do my postgraduate studies at Macquarie as I was impressed by the range of postgraduate programs offered by the University and the creative writing curriculum in particular. The University's reputation and ranking as a learning institution attracted me and the opportunity to study as a distance student made it possible to undertake the Masters degree while living and working in South Australia."
"During my postgraduate studies I learned a great deal about writing as a creative and intellectual process than I would ever have if left to pick things up on my own. Learning theories and practising skills with which I was initially very unfamiliar, helped reinforce my sense of self-confidence and belief that with enough determination, I can achieve far more than I might once have expected to. The discipline of academic study that was required of me has stood me in good stead to pursue professional and personal goals."
