Creative Writing Workshop
- with Anglo-Danish Novelist Liz Jensen
Sept. 11-12 2021 at The Karen Blixen Museum, Rungstedlund.
Part masterclass, part hands-on workshop, the sessions will consist of flash fiction exercises, brainstorming, workshopping and discussion.
The course takes place at The Karen Blixen Museum just north of Copenhagen from 10-17 both days.
The aim is to generate fresh material while learning about key aspects of the craft such as character development, story structure, dialogue, and the editing process.
The teaching is in English, but you are welcome to write in Danish if you prefer. Liz also speaks Danish and will be able to give feedback on texts written in Danish too.
"Liz's exercises taught me how to unleash my creative voice and gave me the confidence to push my writing beyond my comfort zone. Thanks to the course, I'm ready to launch into a big writing project. " – Lena Rutkowski
‘I tend to allow my ‘inner judge’ to paralyze me – but Liz encouraged me to ‘just do it’. The individual feedback gave me a fantastic boost.’ - Mary O Hara
‘Liz has a great way of making everyone in the group feel comfortable sharing insecurities and insights alike. Her brilliant writing prompts also made for great points of departure into lively discussions and good laughs. An enormously joyful and enlightening ride. – Anne Mette Lundtofte
It is hard to find a more exciting venue for a creative writing workshop, since we will be working in the former house of Karen Blixen - one of Denmarks most acclaimed international writers.
Full catering from Café Madam is included in the price (vegan and vegetarian lunch options are available).
Remember to bring writing accessories such as pen & paper, notebook and/or laptop.
Max 12 participants!
