Creation process

In the process of literary writing there is a problem to be solved, an aesthetic intention that needs a form, an artistic duty that leads to inquiry through the word. Therefore, for creation to take place, a continuous research process is indispensable in which the writer -from a certain state of language, of certain forms of history and culture- produces and modifies cultural and human realities. The "creative praxis", as a search for the nonexistent text, becomes the program's proposal for a different form of research.... [-]

The Master in Copywriting is one of those financed by the Call of the Puglia Region "Pass Graduates".

The style of advertising writing in the last few years has changed a lot and on this change have particularly affected those that have been defined as new media.

The word is in fact sensitive to every fashion and change: social, political, environmental, economic, technological, etc.

The advent of digital has brought with it a real revolution that has transversely involved the way we live and think, bringing with it the need for a transformation of the DNA of the whole society.

New forms of communication have emerged and are emerging, which increasingly need to be integrated with traditional ones, turning advertising campaigns into multimedia campaigns.... [-]

Program Details

The two-and-a-half-year program begins each fall, with courses on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 9:15 p.m. On Tuesdays, workshops in each genre (fiction, poetry, and nonfiction) focus on student manuscripts in a peer set of supportive critique. On Thursdays, literature seminars focus on traditions, styles, craft elements and developments, and literary models.

Program of Study

All courses are taken within the MFA program, with classes of three units each, for a total of 33 units during a two-and-a-half-year course of study.

Because cross-fertilization enriches creativity, students are free to take courses outside their primary genre and sample a range of cross-genre literature seminars. Because the depth of understanding is crucial to successful writing, students also take seminars and workshops that focus exclusively on one genre — long fiction, short fiction, poetry, or nonfiction. Students’ work culminates in a creative thesis — a book-length manuscript that is conceived, composed and revised with extensive faculty mentoring. Students work one-on-one with a faculty mentor who provides extensive feedback on their work in a series of scheduled meetings. The thesis may be a novel, a collection of stories, a poetry collection, a collection of creative nonfiction, or a purposeful combination of these genres.... [-]
