1. demonstrate a working awareness of the many formal techniques available for writring about issues of character, identity and relationship;
2. integrate their understanding of contemporary theory into a reflexive and innovative writing practice;
3. make constructive critical responses to their own and other students' writing, and engage in appropriate revisions of their own work;
4. demonstrate confident critical reflection on the relationship between theories of language, subjectivity and the writing process, especially as these relate to their own creative practice.
