Serious Play: Creative Writing Workshop (EAS2035)

30 credits

This is a hands-on Creative Writing workshop for Prose Poetry and Flash Fiction, based on weekly exercises that introduce new writing techniques to fully extend your range of writing. Preparation for each seminar will include background reading of creative texts and completion of short writing assignments. Workshop attendance is compulsory, and you are expected to participate fully in discussions and peer criticisms.

As well as weekly writing workshops, you will give short presentations on 1) technical close readings of your own and others’ work and (2) the development of the portfolio as a cohesive project for final submission. You will have the opportunity to gain critical feedback from the workshop group and tutor. There will be detailed workshops on editing techniques and approaches.
