Beschreibung

At first glance, academic writing does not offer much room for creativity. There are strict rules to follow, and we are constantly exposed to judgement by professors or peers. We sometimes focus too much on the perfect outcome, the perfect text and occasionally get stuck in unhealthy behavioral patterns and mental one-way-streets. If we cannot find a way out of these patterns, they can result in fatigue, writer's block or even a fear of writing.

Including creative writing methods and exercises into your writing process might sound like extra work, but if you learn to use the right methods, they can actually make writing easier. In this workshop, you will learn why creativity is an essential part of your academic writing project and how it can improve your writing process.

We will talk about your experiences with writing of any kind, learn about familiar and new methods and take a look at creative writing as a hobby and how it connects to academic writing. You will learn about creative aspects of composition and argumentation and about personalizing your writing process.
