So12JunWhole daySo19Prose workshopImpulses for your own literary work

Event details

Whether novels, short stories, novellas, aphorisms or memoirs - an endless number of literary forms make use of prose. But what does it actually mean to write prose? Which varieties of prose go with which genres? What is good prose? How can you make prose varied? How do you find your own style of prose - and do you have to? In this course, the participants can exchange ideas about such questions and try out the knowledge gained in practice - because the focus is on working on new prose texts or those they have brought with them. The participants' own writing experiences and interests always form the starting point. In workshop discussions and on short walks, we will finally exchange ideas about the texts that have been created or edited in this way.

Target group:
Anyone who writes or wants to write in prose.
