ONE DAY WORKSHOP: Thursday May 2Creative writing4

Morning: 10 - 12h 
Afternoon: 14 - 16h 

Course Description: A new workshop aimed at boosting your creativity. 

For the writer, creativity is what drives the words onto the page, uncovering idioms and insights we never knew we had in us and creating an urgency to say what we have to say. Words cascade onto the page, ideas percolate up from deep inside us and we surprise ourselves with our own articulateness. Of course, this is an ideal scenario that defies most writers on a day-to-day basis, but it can be sustained if we know how and get ourselves into the right state of mind. This work shop is about inspiration, energy and positive thinking. Join us to discover the thrill of words and the power of the imagination. 

Instructor: Dr Gretel Furner. Oxford University. PhD on the modern novel, University of the Saarland, Germany. Assoc. Professor of German, George Washington University.  Instructor, the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Since 2003 instructor at WICE in French Literature and History, the Migrant Soul series and Creative Writing.
