Characteristics of the degree programme and offered majors:

Creative Writing and Publishing Marketing is a modern programme in which students develop their own artistic creativity (prose, poetry, screenplay) and learn about the publishing marketing and how to find themselves on today's book market. During the programme, the students gain knowledge and skills concerning nature, course, and solving issues within the framework of creative processes. They also discover the specificity of publishing market in Poland and learn about marketing tools used by the leading Polish publishing houses. During the course of studies, issues related to the latest literature, screenplay writing, sociology of literature and the publishing market as well as publishing marketing are presented. Importantly, classes are held both by experienced practitioners (novelists and poets, directors of publishing houses, editors and marketing specialists) as well as specialists in the scope of the latest literature and book market. Creative Writing and Publishing Marketing is addressed to people who wish to realise themselves in creative work or publishing work and, at the same time, develop their own interpersonal competencies and creative skills in contact with others.
