Teaching Electronic Creative Writing: A Report from the Creative Industries Frontline
Since 2000, we have developed and taught a course at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia: KWB370 – Electronic Creative Writing. The course has run in each first semester (February-July) since then, as part of the undergraduate Creative Writing degree and is now offered to postgraduate students as well. The course was developed partly in response to demands for more technological literacy skills to be embedded in key courses across the university, but a more significant motivation was the our desire to embrace, represent, and contribute to the then still-emergent genre of literary hypertext as a valid and viable option for writers both as creative artists and industry professionals. This desire was also in line with our home faculty’s re-orientation from a Faculty of Arts to a Creative Industries Faculty, which includes a strong interest in professionally relevant graduate outcomes and with QUT’s overall focus on providing its students with skills useful outside academia.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
