The Writing for Change course seeks to place social justice and social change at the heart of creative practice.

The course proposes writing as a powerful tool for making change in your community, your professional field, and within broader social contexts.

Writing is a form of collaboration and cooperation and a means to engage with critique and challenge power.

We see writing practice as a driver for change in relation to society's challenges. We see writing as part of our mission to tie creativity into social purpose, and this course engages with a diverse community who are engaged with this collective effort.

Situated in an art and design environment, Writing for Change is about creating and encouraging interactions with different disciplines, localities, contexts, beliefs and audiences.

The course is fully online and builds on the idea that you are situated in your own geographies, communities, disciplinary fields and social identities.

Through engaging with writing practice, you will develop your understanding of what it means to be engaged in social change.

You will be introduced to different modes, approaches and contexts to writing and build skills that lead to group publication of works.
