The AAWP is always interested in hearing what its postgraduate members would like from the association, and always seeks to guide and advise its members on topics relevant to a candidature in an academic creative writing program within the Australasian region.
As the AAWP develops, this page will provide answers to a series of FAQs posed by its postgraduate members. In the meantime, we welcome suggestions and comments on what the AAWP can do for the postgraduate members of its community.
Please direct any questions, and any further comments or requests for assistance, to our current postgraduate representative, Hayley Elliot-Ryan at firstname.lastname@example.org
How Does the AAWP Assist Its Postgraduate Members?
The AAWP is available to advise its postgraduate members on a range of concerns relevant to postgraduate researchers in creative writing programs across the Australasian region. The AAWP provides guidance on: connecting with a community of HDR writers; building a research project; connecting with the professional community of writers in the academy; seeking examiners; any issues to do with teaching and research in writing.
We welcome suggestions and comments on what the AAWP can do for the postgraduate members of its community.

Please note: This service is aimed at providing pastoral support rather than policy advice.
