Creative Writing Workshop: Between the Unconscious and the Words

Berlin
Hobrechtstrasse 66 Berlin, 12047
Writing
The Self

Description

Due to the fact that our previous workshop was an inspiring experience, we have decided to organise a new one. If you have attended the one in March and you wish to spend more some in self-exploration through creative writing, you are welcome to take part again. If you have missed the previous one and would like to join us now for the first time, you are more than welcome.

 

The creative writing workshop is dedicated to the pleasure of writing and expressing oneself. It is not a technical course, it is an experimental moment where we spontaneously write short texts based on simple instructions, intended not to limit us, but to stimulate our imagination. We will play with free associations and the famous game of "exquisite corpse" to put our legs together, then we will go on with writing longer and more personal texts. The workshop is open to everyone: psychologists or not, writers in the making or curious people... It is a creative moment of sharing, where we do not judge ourselves. We will speak and give instructions in English, but everyone will be free to write in their mother tongue if it is easier.

 

Format & Participation

The format is interactive and participatory. Total length is two and a half hours. To maintain a safe and open discussion, this workshop has been designed for a closed group of up to 12 participants.

After the introduction, we will have three to four « exercises », during which participants will have a chance to write. The « exercises » will last between 4 and 15 minutes and everyone will be free to share the text by reading. However, it is not mandatory that each participant reads. We will explore topics familiar to psychology, such as the transcription of emotions, free associations, the dreams, the memory, the change of point of view... To see that in literature, everything is possible!
