In the Works: A Responsive Workshop for Creative Writing Enthusiasts. Englisch C1 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maryann Henck

wöchentlich | Freitag | 14:15 - 17:45 | 18.10.2021 - 04.02.2022 | C 5.111 Seminarraum

Inhalt: Do you have an unfinished or neglected piece of work – maybe songs, poems, a short story, excerpts from a novel, play or screenplay – saved somewhere on your laptop, stashed away in a drawer, or swirling around in your head? Maybe you’ve already taken a creative writing seminar or workshop and just can’t kick the writing habit? Or perhaps you write in secret and are in search of a haven for presenting and receiving feedback on your literary creations? Then let this seminar be your safe space for creativity and for whatever you currently have “in the works.” This is how the responsive workshop works: - The entire group meets for writing exercises, readings of their works and peer feedback on a weekly basis from 14:15-15:45. - During the second-half of the session, I schedule rotating individual appointments for students on a bi-/tri-weekly basis. This responsive workshop is geared toward anyone with literary inclinations and aspirations who is interested in actively co-establishing and participating in a creative community for: * simultaneously presenting your works-in-progress and refining your verbal (fluency, enunciation) as well non-verbal (paralanguage) communication skills * learning how to give constructive criticism as peer editors * experimenting with a variety of writing as well as creativity techniques * refining your revising and editing skills * further developing your literary voice and writing style * honing your sprachgefühl for the English language * overcoming writer’s block, page fright, and stage fright
