From the 26th to the 28th of January, 2021, the EACWP launches its second Premium Virtual Edition of its European Course for Teachers of Creative Writing, involving three of our most expert European teachers. In this occasion, we’ll count on the participation of a female panel as in the past edition we had a fully male team. Additionally, this new edition will be provided of a more practical focus, closer to the workshop format than a masterclass. The sessions will be celebrated through Zoom. Worldwide participants are welcome to join us. Enrollments are already open until January, 22nd, 2021
Teaching approaches to creative writing
This Premium Virtual Edition will comprise three different workshops that will take place on Tuesday, 26th, Wednesday, 27th and Thursday, 28th of January from 17.00 to 19.00 (CET). As in the regular format of our Teachers Training Course, over these sessions, our EACWP teachers will share their different methodologies, approaches and experiences in the teaching of creative writing by offering a so called “auteur workshop” by performing and explaining their own ars pedagogica and didactics from both a theoretical and practical approach. All the working sessions will be focused on pedagogical training and guidelines to empower the participants to develop their own teaching interests and new possibilities.
Meeting your colleagues
On the 26th of January, worldwide participants are invited to join a colleagues meeting at 16.00 (one hour before the first workshop starts) in order to give everyone the opportunity to introduce him/herself and to get to know the rest of the group members.
Additionally, on the 28th of January, right after the last workshop, we will be delighted to replicate the feat as part of the course clousure.
Please, feel welcome and bring your drink!
