Creative Writing in English

In this course, you will have the opportunity to develop your writing skills in a series of seminars and workshops. The theory segment will start with “reading like a writer” sessions in which we will analyse major elements of craft: characterization, show-don’t-tell, openings&endings, structure, setting, and style. You will write a number of exercises during the course and one short story, which will be workshopped in the second half of the term. It is crucial to come to the seminars well prepared and be active.
