About the Course
Independent Project is the second of OCA’s two advanced courses in creative writing. Like Retrospect & Prospect, Independent Project has been designed to help you develop whatever piece(s) of writing you wish to work on. It’s not a detailed, prescriptive course that lays down a step-by-step syllabus of work for everyone to follow. Rather, it offers a flexible scaffolding that will help facilitate each individual’s unique body of work. The course is based on the mentoring model. This means that it’s up to each individual, in discussion with their tutor, to negotiate the particular pathway they’ll take through the pages that follow. The course offers opportunities to build on the skills and knowledge gained from Retrospect & Prospect.
The Open College of the Arts is a non-profit educational charity offering arts education through open and flexible distance learning methods. You will receive support from a one-to-one tutor who is also an arts practitioner and you will become part of a thriving UK and international student community.
All of our part time distance learning Open degrees are awarded by the University for the Creative Arts (UCA). We have an exceptional range of part-time Open courses at Higher Education level in painting, drawing, photography, music, illustration, graphic design, creative writing, textiles, sculpture, printmaking, art history and film.
