UQ’s creative outputs are acclaimed nationally and internationally, and have made significant contributions to the shape and conception of Australian literature, drama, and music. Creative Writing, Drama, and Music at UQ engage with both individual creative works and research-based portfolios. The area addresses historical and contemporary texts as well as the specific conditions of creative practice. The impact of this research shows itself in the recognition by both audience and critics of the creative texts that it generates and performs, and extends to engagement with Australia Council policy on arts education and youth arts programs.
