This creative writing course uses the interactive, workshop method to teach the craft of writing a good story. The word “story” includes fictional stories and creative non-fiction stories/essays. Students needs and interests would be taken into consideration. As the course progresses they would be able to focus on fiction or creative nonfiction.
We will pay special attention to the importance of detail, serious noticing, and deep listening while developing a piece. What non-fiction writers can learn from fiction writers and vice versa? How does one energize readers rather than paralyzing them?
We will closely analyse fragments from fiction and non-fiction writers. We will write short pieces inspired by objects, images, and walks. By the end of the course each student will have a good first draft of a short story or a creative non-fiction essay ready.
The course will appeal to graduate and undergraduate students from all disciplines. Please note: The course is not designed to help improve English language skills.
Please note: due to the time difference between Germany and Canada, the workshop will take place during the evening hours in Germany.
Students may obtain either 3 KP or 6 KP in this course, depending on the workload they take on. Students who have already participated in previous courses will be able to attend as guests if space permits, but will not be able to gain more than a total of 6 KP.
Duration: 7 days in the period of August 29 to September 9th, 2022.
