May 7 @ 10:00 - June 25 @ 12:00

Level I writing workshop
Logo International Writers’ Collective

For the third time in a row, I’ll be teaching a Level I creative writing workshop. This one starts on 7 May and runs through 25 June 2019 without a break. We’ll be working with fundamental writing techniques like narrator, point of view, tone, mood and description.

This is a workshop where you’ll learn by doing. Each week, I’ll give you a sample text. We’ll talk about the craft techniques buried inside. Your homework will then be to write a two page exercise using those same crafts. At the next class, we’ll discuss your exercise, those written by your fellow students and the new sample text. Rinse and repeat. In the meantime, you’ll be learning to read like a writer and to edit your own work.

Level 1 is for aspiring writers, including those who’ve never before set pen to paper. It can also be useful to experienced writers in search of formal instruction. For fiction writers and poets alike!

Classes meet once a week on Tuesday mornings from 10am to 12pm. The venue is Amsterdam at the lovely Boekhandel van Rossum on the Beethovenstraat.

Please note that advance registration is required. This will be one of the last times I’ll be teaching before embarking on my round-the-world adventure. Sign up soon!
