*15 mai--18h - 23h Art & Performance (with music) Second edition "Soirée des Arts Fugitiviste".

The works are exhibited (painting, photo, sculpture) for a period of 15 days or performed live (music, poetry, theater, video) on the opening night.

7, 14, 23 May & 4 June (Mondays), 3:30 – 6:30pm Write to the Finish Every writer faces the problem of having the impulse to write, but the seeming inability to finish a darn thing. How do we transform our inspiration into completed works? In this course, we will learn tried & true habits for creative writers that are within anyone’s reach & essential to success in any writing genre. We will work through taking those daunting first steps toward letting the world inspire us—& hear us; how to get out of ruts & into productive grooves, find the spine of our work, sustain concentration, & transform this intimidating craft into an old friend.

The workshop will take place in two stages. Stage One is a generative lab focusing on process; how do we travel with an eye to future writing & how can we use travel writing to explore the self & the other? We'll look at different approaches to travel writing, including Peter Beard's photo-collage journals, Lisa St. Aubin de Teran's memoirs, Bruce Chatwin's travel essays, Anne Carson's slide between poetry & prose, David Sedaris' humorous writing, & Victor Hugo's carnets de voyage. Stage Two will be a time of constructive criticism of student work-in-progress by the instructor & class. Instructor: Lisa Pasold Code: WY171 Fee: 141€ WICE: 01 45 66 75 50

24, 31 May & 7, 14 June (Thurs) 3:30 – 5:30pm: The Gun in the First Act? There's an old theatre & novel rule: If someone gets shot in act three, you have to have first shown the gun in act one. You can't have someone die of consumption at the end of the book if they aren't at least coughing somewhere at the beginning. In other words, the traditional story arc does not permit any surprises. None. In this workshop, we discuss the extent to which these rules can be broken. Students will come up with plots in class or present stories they have already written. We will also devote one class to discussing the history & evolution of the novel as a literary form. Instructor: Y. Euny Hong Code: WY241 Fee: 124€ WICE: 01 45 66 75 50

29 May, Tues, 10am-1pm: Writing a Script that Sells & Selling the Script you Wrote Every script writer wants his or her material turned into a film. Getting a script read, optioned, or sold is a daunting task. A writer can greatly increase the chances of selling a script once he or she understands the marketplace & the mind of the buyer. In this workshop we will learn about what buyers are looking for, how they evaluate a script’s potential, what types of stories do well with different audiences, ways to enhance a script’s marketability, how revenue projections impact the way a story can be told, which are the right buyers to target, how to create the story log line, & what goes into a marketing letter that will draw a response. Instructor: Judith Merians Code: WY291 Fee: 74€ WICE: 01 45 66 75 50

4, 6, 11, 13, 18, 20 June (Mon & Weds), 1:00pm - 3:00pm: From Final Edit to First Sale Back by popular demand, this course explores the different routes a writer can take to get their work out into the world. We will discuss options, & walk through some of the necessary steps, such as searching for the right literary agent for your work, writing query letters, discussing book proposals, learning about alternative ways to get your book into print, such as e-publishing & print-on-demand services. We will also discuss publicity techniques, how to organize a book tour, & some creative ways to get that first book sold! Instructor: Tanio McCallum Code: WU041 Fee: 141€ AT: WICE 01 45 66 75 50
