Program description

Story Foundry PhD by Publication (Distance Learning)

By adding an academic accreditation to your existing portfolio of work or career, you'll position yourself to take the next step, and open up further academic and industry opportunities.

You’ll be able to frame and articulate your practice and career within specialist contexts, such as situating your work within literary and storytelling traditions or within the context of social, economical and digital transformations.

Rather than focusing narrowly on the discipline or subject, we'll support you to focus on the purpose of your research and we'll help you to produce a thesis that aligns with your career goals.
