Writing is allowed to be fun and enjoyable! The course “Kreativ schreiben!” offers practical, hands-on experience in creative writing and in perfecting rough drafts. The course instructors are authors and writing coaches.
For Summer semester 2020, “Kreativ schreiben!” will guide its participants through the topics of the writing experience with the topics Creativity Training, Poetry Slam Text, Prose Text and Writing to be Read Aloud. The course culminates in a special way: an author reading event for which each participant reads one of the texts developed within the course!
You can additionally register for this course within the minor studies program “Sprache, Literatur, Kultur” (SLK) and, in this case, will receive graded credit after turning in a writing portfolio at the end of the course.
For everyone, the application for this course requires a creative, poetic text about your writing experience (max. 5 sentences). Why do you write? In what ways do you find enjoyment through writing? What do you connect with ‘words’ and ‘writing’? Be creative!
Note: This course will be led in German, so participants should have a more advanced command of the language to best benefit from this course.
You can apply until March 31, 2020 via our registration form.
