Postgraduate resources

The Australian Postgraduate Writers Network, funded by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council, is a national community of teaching academics, research students and graduates involved in creative writing higher degree programs. The aim of the Network is to facilitate conversations and connections among creative writing students and supervisors, and those from other writing disciplines, to develop best-practice learning and teaching, and circulate findings from research and practice.

Other pages on the AAWP site open up more information for postgraduate writers: lists of the tertiary institutions in Australia and New Zealand that offer writing courses; news about conferences and publications; and other opportunities including writing jobs, grants and competitions. TEXT: journal of writing and writing courses offers additional resources and a body of published material on the discipline.
