Why study Writing, Editing and Publishing?
The Writing, Editing, and Publishing (WEP) program addresses the escalating demand for specialist writing and editing skills in all fields, channels, media, and genres within both traditional and new media. An accelerating international focus means enhanced employment prospects for graduates. The courses present students with the grounding to generate, edit, and publish a wide range of academic, creative, journalistic, and workplace documents. All the courses have a close connection with current practices in the writing, editing, and publishing industries because the staff have extensive and current industry experience. Opportunities for networking are a key feature of the program, which has a website, www.wepwiki.pbworks.com, that functions as a vehicle for substantial exchange. The program provides knowledge, skills, credibility, and opportunity for graduates to function as sophisticated professionals. Graduates have been hired by prestigious institutions such as the British Standards Institution and the Southbank Centre in London; the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; the National Gallery of Australia; and the Australian Library and Information Association. Others are working in publishing in all the leading publishing houses in Australia.
