Professional Writing and Editing at RMIT University is a comprehensive trade school for writers and editors.
Its Associate Degree in Professional Writing and Editing (PWE) is recognised as one of the premier writing programs in Australia and provides excellent training for a wide range of editing and publishing roles.
PWE is dynamic, inspiring and industry-connected. Our writing teachers are published authors who know their craft intimately and have a passion for nurturing newer writers. Editing teachers have strong industry credentials too; they teach students the essentials and support them to cut their teeth on real-world publishing projects. Prominent and innovative players in Melbourne’s vibrant publishing scene visit our classes to share their expertise and knowledge of a fast-changing industry.
The student cohort is wonderfully diverse. While their skills, life experience and interests vary, they share a love of reading, writing and creating. During their studies they build networks and join communities that stay with them beyond the program.
At this trade school for writers and editors, students learn by doing. Writing is taught with an eye to publication and is complemented by skills in editing, professional writing and digital technologies. Students leave ready to build a sustainable freelance practice or in-house career in writing, editing or publishing.
