Creative Writing (in English) - workshop
Would you like to express yourself through creative writing? This course will encourage you to see your ideas come to life on the page within different genres.
This course is for people who are interested in creative writing and want to take their first steps writing in English. It doesn't matter whether you're a native or non-native English speaker. Beginners and more experienced writers are all welcome.
The goal of the course is for you to get started in creative writing and be provided with the tools of the trade.
Content and methods
You'll get the opportunity to write with the guidance of the teacher and the support of the group. Through learning about different genres, as well as critical reading and editing, you'll be assisted in finding your own voice and your preferred style of writing.
The course consists of seminars and workshops. During the seminars you'll learn about the basics of creative writing, different styles and genres of writing. Techniques will be broken down and explained, and reading examples given - material provided by the teacher - so that you may use them to find your own voice, and then express yourself through short exercises.
The workshop is where you get the chance to focus on your own work. You'll be assisted in learning how to read and re-read in a critical manner. One of the most important virtues of a writer is editing; the earlier this is learned by a writer, the better they will turn out to be. You'll be encouraged to write by using your own experience and imagination, and you'll get feedback to help you edit your work.
