This module will offer students the opportunity to reflect on and work on their own writing through engagement with a range of aesthetic writers from the period 1860 - 1900. Students will learn about different kinds of aesthetic prose such as art criticism, literary appreciation, autobiography, travel writing and the short story and give special attention to the topic of style. Students will have the opportunity to work creatively on a variety of short exercises, which will be single- marked by the module leader and returned for revision. For the formal assessment students will submit a portfolio of 4 revised pieces accompanied by a log-book in which they are expected to record their reflections on each class and on the prescribed reading and exercises.
