About the programme
This programme allows students to explore and develop their writing skills as a vocation, with a strong focus on transferable writing skills, using new media and establishing a strong writing CV.
The teaching in this programme is largely experiential and project-focused. From almost day one, you will work, with guidance and support, on local industry-based projects, both in teams and individually, and covering a range of genres.
At the same time, you will be able to pursue your personal aspirations as a writer, whether it is to write the next blockbuster novel, a collection of poems or develop a script for film or a TV series.
Graduates of the NMIT Writing for Creative Industries programme now work as writers in various roles in local industry, some as journalists and media writing specialists. Many students have had work published in local and national journals, achieved success in competitions or gone on to have books published. Others have progressed into study in the Master of Creative Writing programme at Victoria University of Wellington, or similar writing programmes.
