Public and Professional Writing

Engage in an intensive analysis of public and professional writing styles and literacies, and practise writing for both digital and print environments.  Explore areas such as writing for the public, online publishing, technical writing and creative non-fiction.  This minor will give you the key skills in collaboration, communicating specialised knowledge to both general and professional audiences, and the accurate and effective presentation of visual and textual data.  You'll get the skills to translate your disciplinary knowledge into effective public documents.
