Students will gain a greater awareness for the strengths and challenges of public, creative non-fiction writing, while having ample opportunities to gain hands-on experience. In particular, we will delve into the topics of film reviews, interviews as well as short pieces about cultural topics and current events. Students will be mentored on an individual basis, experience workshopping and peer-editing as well as have the opportunity to submit their final work for publication in the ASB (http://blog.asjournal.org). Experienced writers as well as newcomers are welcome.

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

Dozent/in: Maria Moss

wöchentlich | Dienstag | 12:15 - 15:45 | 18.10.2021 - 04.02.2022 | C 5.325 Seminarraum

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.
