Distance learning school Stratford Career Institute is now offering a revised home study Creative Writing course. The newly revamped curriculum has been modified to infuse a more direct and modern approach regarding the creation, writing, and editing of short stories.
“We felt concentrating on the short story was a practical decision for a self-paced creative writing course,” said Dr. Claude Major, Director of Education for Stratford Career Institute. “It forces the student to really focus on each particular component of creative writing in a very detailed and enhanced manner,” he added.
Stratford’s Creative Writing course is broken down into six primary modules: An Introduction to Creative Writing; Characters and Point of View; Plot; Beginnings, Middles, Ends; Scene and Structure; Theme and Strategy.
Each module is designed to help students learn the fundamental components involved in professional creative writing as well as correctly facilitate a student’s own written works. Students are required to take both multiple-choice exams as well as submit detailed writing assignments as outlined in the Student Assignment Booklet.
Overall, Stratford says that students will gain a more thorough understanding of both the creative and technical aspects involved in a career in creative writing.
