Creative Writing Workshop
About the Talk

This workshop is open to any level of French, from beginners to advanced.

This creative writing workshop brings together members of the Franco-Scottish Society and undergraduate students enrolled on the module ‘Creative writing in French’.

It is an opportunity for participants from different generations, backgrounds and levels of French to experiment with writing techniques, share their pieces and memories arising from the writing process.

Participants will be given writing prompts and time to write their own pieces, with help at hand from staff teaching on the module.

They will then be given the opportunity to share their pieces and discuss the writing process.
