I never really considered writing as a profession because I didn't know where to start. I recently realized that I really like writing, even essays or editing other peoples work. It was just the procrastination and the fact that it was school work that dampened it for me. Well recently I've decided I want to start writing. I applied for a transfer to a different uni with a Creative Writing program, and I bought a few books that are considered more as "literature".
Now that you have a little background info here comes the plea for help. I have two months to make a literary portfolio. I've never creatively written (academically) in my life.
I assume they expect short stories and that short stories are also the best way to learn. However I have NO idea what else to expect, what they expect, how to get started or what good credible resources are for rules, not-to-dos and general guidelines.
Help me out TL writers! If you know any resources at all or can tell me anything about portfolios or academic expectations of creative writing please do!
By the way I'm transferring to UVIC, if anyone goes there then holla!
