WICE has long been a vital center for creative writing and literature study, particularly as the host of the celebrated Paris Writers' Workshop
WICE offers classes and workshops to hone your writing and editing skills, to expand your knowledge of popular authors and genres through lively literary discussions, and to explore Paris past and present through the well-crafted words of French and expat writers. Our focus includes:
- Writing (prose, poetry, words and images)
- Literature (French masters, Paris expats, Greek mythology)
- The Migrant Soul (exploring international life through literature)
You’ll meet like-minded creative writers and readers and be guided and inspired by true lovers of the written word—published authors, journalists, poets, and professors of literature.
"I was a student of Bob Levy's writing class 'Raising the Stakes' and I would just like to tell you that he was a wonderful help to me in the class and I enjoyed the course immensely. Bob made a huge effort in the class and I think he is a very good teacher that I am sure has and will continue to inspire. Thanks." C.L.
