Course – Creative Writing: Practice, Research and Reflection


Dates: Nov 9, Nov 25 & Dec 9 // 5 ECTS

They learn to use creative writing techniques as forms of artistic research and methodological inspiration. The morning sessions introduce recent research on creative writing as a historical and discursive phenomenon, various approaches to creativity and the practical experiences of authors and journalists who have crossed the borders between academic, literary and journalistic writing. In the afternoon seminars, students experiment with various literary and creative writing techniques.
