This chapter examines recent policy and research documents as well as issues of public criticism, in the UK and Australian context, to uncover the most significant accountability measures that need to be addressed. Then, by focusing on the unique qualities of creative writing, it draws out a range of tactics including: maintaining relevance for the discipline by encouraging work on the new forms of writing (such as web series, multimedia storytelling, and apps), and recruiting doctoral candidates for that purpose; developing additional new narrative forms; supporting multidisciplinary work and supervision; innovating approaches to the doctorate itself; and developing remote models in online and distance learning to extend the reach and diversity of doctorates.
