3. Unblocking the Writing Process
4.00pm – 6.00pm / Suitable for adults & recommended for teachers and beginning writers
Participants will write a story from a personal memory. It will be possible, in this case, to change the narrator’s point of view from the first to third person. That is, in short, to observe and analyse the real and the unreal through the eyes of the writer, always watching as if seen for the first time. The relationship between reality and fiction.
