France, Paris

Fiction Writing Workshop

when 2 July 2018 - 20 July 2018
language English
duration 3 weeks
credits 4 ECTS

In this workshop, we will deepen our practices of both process and craft in order to create original works of fiction. We will study the basic elements of fiction—character, narrative, perspective, voice, and so on—but we will do this while engaging with Paris, with French writers (in translation) and with writers in other languages who have been influenced by French writers and/or by spending time in France. Our work together will include writing exercises, workshopping, adventuring, and, with any luck, getting lost and being changed. In this course, the writers we will read may include Mavis Gallant, James Baldwin, Colette, Marie N’Diaye, Francis Ponge, Patrick Modiano, Marguerite Duras, and Chester Himes. Bring your notebook, your imagination, and a good pair of walking shoes.
