Writing for the Creative Industries II


Over the past decade Singapore has invested heavily in the cultural industries. However, most of this investment has been in infrastructure rather than skills. As a result, there are opportunities for graduates with research and writing skills to begin building interesting careers across the sector while avoiding some of the drawbacks of institutional life. This course provides both theoretical and practical grounding in the opportunities available for young Singaporeans, as well as how to leverage their academic research skills to succeed in the creative industries.
