Full Event Details

The workshop will be focused on discussing and challenging people that use English as their primary language in everyday life to write creatively incorporating their mother tongue. The aim is not only to tell their own personal story as well as to highlight their experience on how their native language can be perceived by others where communication is often viewed as english-centric in a globalised world. The main focus will be to learn between ourselves what is the beauty and uniqueness of being your true self and your identity through language and the written word. 

The workshop will be divided in two parts: in the first meeting we will have a round table of sharing opinions and discussing the matter with the participants, as well as a first introduction to writing creatively about this topic – prompts will be shared. During the time in between workshops, participants will have the time to work on and develop their own story. In the second part we will be working together on touch ups and how they felt about the task. In the end whoever feels like it will be able to share their final product with the rest of the room.
