It’s official, I’ve been accepted into the Master of Arts Writing Program and yes, I’m EXCITED!
I was accepted into the program via recognition of prior learning and also had two of the units credited for the very same reason. When I first applied I wasn’t sure that I would have a chance as I hadn’t completed an undergraduate certificate let alone a diploma.
I’m lucky that in Brisbane there is so much support for writers and I have always had other options than just the courses that the universities offer. It was these masterclasses, workshops and critiquing groups that have helped me become the writer I am today. The writer with the confidence to apply for a course seemingly out of their reach.
Now I look forward to my first unit – Real Life Writing and the challenges I’m sure it will bring.
