Since the fall of 2018, the Granada City of Literature UNESCO Programme (Arts Departament of Granada City Council) and the Aula de Literatura of the University of Granada have been collaborating on a series of free micro-workshops on writing. Our micro-workshops deal with very diverse aspects of literary creation. They aim to stimulate enthusiasm for literature, to generate new audiences, and to foster a network of complicity between authors-teachers and participants. The workshops have been celebrated on-site at the Madraza palace, but in 2020 they went on-line, due to Covid restrictions. In 2021, however, they are going to be carried out both on-site and on-line, as they will do in 2022.
There are a maximum of 15 places for each workshop, expandable to 20 places if done online, on a first-come, first-served basis. Those interested in applying for participation should write an email to email@example.com
«Correcting Short Stories» | Teacher: Eloy Tizón | Date: March, 11, 2022, from 6.30 pm to 9 pm — Online, via Google Meet
The review of our stories is usually a phase as neglected as it is exciting. In this workshop we will reflect on its importance, while offering a practical approach to different ways of approaching this crucial stage of writing, which will allow us to delve into the nature of fiction. After the teacher’s presentation, there will be time to ask questions and address the doubts and concerns of the participants.
