English as a Second Language
October 23, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
If you’re someone who has learnt English as a second (or even third!) language, this workshop is for you. We’ll read from some work, discuss ideas in different languages and compare style, wording, metaphors and similes, then start drafting pieces of writing: verses of poetry or premise for short stories, lines of spoken words or lyrics for a song!
We’ll then look at tips on how to look back at your writing, edit and keep your grammar in check. You don’t need to plan to write a novel to participate. Anyone who likes reading and writing and is fluent in another language can join.
The goal of this workshop is to give you confidence to write in English even if you feel that your level is not perfect, and to play with your knowledge to make your style more unique.
