Workshop: Writing 101

Have you always wanted to write? Not for academic assignments, but for yourself?
Thousands of years after its invention, written text is still a fundamental technology for humans. And in the 21st century it is easier than ever to write your own thing, and then to share it online, get readership and quality feedback, publishing deals, talk-show interviews, big $$, etc. It’s what every writer dreams about.

Okay that last bit might be a bit of an exaggeration (‘hyperbole’ is the literary term). Nevertheless, today’s workshop is meant as a first step for beginning writers. To pick up a pen under professional supervision and see what comes out. Jolien Strous of the Centre for Languages and Academic Skills at TPM will lead the workshop through several fun and creative writing assignments. All of which will be expressly non-academic.
It’s “Writing 101”: it’s the first step. If you learn how to write quality texts this day, who knows where it will take you.

Please register by sending an email to SG @ (without the spaces). This low key workshop is free for students and staff.
