“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” - Chinese proverb. A well-rounded creative writing programme must strive to teach its writers to fish by helping them develop a capacity to work independently and identify career opportunities that allow them to use the variety of skills they have learned at university. Programme directors and tutors from Columbia College Chicago and Bath Spa University presented overviews of their programmes and specific course work in oral communication, creative enterprise, editing, publishing, new media, and other subjects.
