Writer's Workshop

The ”Writer’s Workshop“ is designed for people who are curious about the world and take delight in language. Based on different subjects we will sharpen our view and let our imagination run wild. Starting with little things we will develop cues and design sketches – and of course we will also do excursions to the surrounding areas and write about them, whilst also experiencing the thoughts of famous writers on similar topics. We will discuss methods of research and suspense, dialogue, and tenses, stereotypes and inventions.
