We will principally be writing, reading and discussing our own texts as a way to encourage the creative use of language (primarily English) in an exploratory atmosphere. Writing in the workshop, both individually and collaboratively, as well as at home, we shall investigate a variety of genres, including short stories, poetry, dialogues, sketches and mini-dramas, employing a range of techniques and forms, such as automatic writing, interviews, dream diaries, cut-ups, collage, haiku, chants, sound poetry, visual poetry and others. We will also read some work by other writers for inspiration and discuss the use of the word in a visual context.

Note: this workshop will be blocked in order to accommodate those people still working in the ‘Englisch für Dissertanten’ group. Details on the first day of the course (10.3.09).
