An English creative writing workshop that will focus on adopting an author’s perspective to everyday life and examine the tools and techniques necessary to structure a narrative. Fiction and non-fiction and something in between; we will focus on finding a starting point to any piece and building a solid foundation for any idea, scene, and dialogue.
The workshop will be taught in English, but the core principles can be applied to any language!
