Invitation from Professor Judith Burnett to all students to a Creativity Workshop. An opportunity for students to share their experiences and have their ideas and stories published in a book.
Wednesday 18th February 1-3pm
Venue: Greenwich University
Stephen Lawrence Building – Room: 105
Refreshments will be available
What it’s about?
As part of our programme to support students, the University wants to hear about student’s experiences of work – what it means to students, what work they’ve done, their dilemmas and their dreams.
We’re doing this differently, as a creative project. We want students to share and write micro-stories (flash fiction of 350 words) about their world of work. We’ll support students to do it and we’ll publish a quality collection of student’s stories in a beautiful book. It doesn’t matter if students haven’t done any creative writing before or if they think they’re not creative, we can prove everyone is!
Due to the success and positive feedback from students following the first Creativity Workshop, we have decided to run another Creativity Workshop to allow more students to be involved with this wonderful project.
It’s a resource for the University to help us plan and support students in the future, and a show case for their creativity. Participating students will also receive a copy of the book of their own.
What Students will gain from participating?
¬- Participation is entirely free; it is an opportunity to have their work published in a book, students will be part of a collaborative creative writing project, which will also look great on their CVs.
– An opportunity to develop and improve on their creative thinking and writing skills; that can be adapted to a range of practical challenges, problems and also help develop their transferrable skills.
– An opportunity for students to have their writing published – support to write to a publishable standard (and evidence that they can)!
– A chance to influence what the University does in the future; to support students in their careers.
What will it be like?
– Workshops that are very practical, with lots of short exercises designed to stimulate student’s creative prowess and we promise no embarrassing moments.
– There will be input from a facilitator but no lecturers. It doesn’t matter if students haven’t done any creative writing before or if students think you’re not creative, we can prove everyone is.
