Participants will learn about the nature of theme as it manifests in narrative, along with the difference between theme and topic. Techniques for refining and delivering theme will be studied and practised. Participants will also learn about forging connections between characterisation and theme development. Consisting of three units, this module contains a variety of writing exercises, as well as recommended readings.
