Creative Writing: Poetry, Short Fiction, and Beyond. Englisch ab B2.2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maria Moss

Termin:
wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 12:15 - 15:45 | 04.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C 5.111

Inhalt: Interested in awakening your creative spirit and discovering your potential for equally creative output? This seminar puts theory into practice by offering a variety of exercises to ignite ideas, experiment with literary styles and genres as well as give and receive constructive criticism in peer-editing sessions. This seminar will help you develop your own style and voice when writing poetry, flash fiction, vignettes, and a short story or part of a drama. While students will use the Cisneros “snapshot approach” to writing vignettes (e.g. expressing a certain moment, mood, character, or object while creating an atmosphere, not a story), they will initially write traditional Japanese Haikus before moving on to the great modernists, such as Robert Frost and W.C. Williams. In the end, students will have a portfolio (for lack of a better name), consisting of 3 Haikus, 3 pieces of short fiction, and 3 poems.

Working with Texts. Englisch B1.2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maria Moss

Termin:
wöchentlich | Freitag | 10:15 - 13:45 | 04.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C 5.019

Inhalt: In this seminar, we will work with a variety of engaging texts from flash fiction and poetry to scholarly texts. Students will become familiar with a variety of reading strategies in a cooperative atmosphere. In addition, students will practice identifying purpose and organization of texts, while learning to read more critically and efficiently. All of these skills will help students to better master the challenges of reading a variety of university texts in English. Finally, I also hope that students will become more confident and passionate readers over the course of the semester.
