      • 2:1 Course Elements - I completed my second year abroad studying at California State University, Fresno. - I researched and produced poetry, screenplays, literary/genre fiction, personal essays, radio plays and persuasive/informative articles. - I studied many forms of experimental poetry, including concrete, sound, psychogeographical, digital, collaborative and found. - Weekly, I critiqued ten works of fiction/non-fiction and up to fifteen poems (during my year abroad). - Throughout linguistics I researched psycholinguistics, language acquisition, phonetics and syntax. - I took a special study in narrative. I analysed theories behind the narrative elements of conversations, news pieces over time, fairytales, adverts, verbally recalled events and more. Dissertation - My dissertation (which received a 1st) was a 6,000-word, non-chronological prose story titled, Eating Shiva. The research that formed the style of language came from the beat generation mixed with experimental writers such as William Burroughs and Kathy Acker.
