These workshops, six sessions of four hours, will be led by writers accustomed to “out” the words, to allow the participants to move towards their personal style.

The first objective of the Workshops of writing for the Figaro Littéraire is to exchange with you about your desires, your blockages. We believe that the main difficulty inherent in the writing is of a psychological order. Together, the goal is to be able to “unlock”, to demystify writing. There are techniques to make out the text that one carries in oneself, to give themselves a discipline. The concept of fun and gaming is ubiquitous -all of the exercises or games write have a playful dimension. From the second session, participants will be able to see a progression.

During the first session, we will make a “state” desires to propose games and exercises that would be better.

In general, we will explore different avenues of writing, and we will go to the meeting of each text -for those who want it. All areas will be reviewed: Notebooks and diaries / Stories / Stories / Novels / New / Poems / Biographies / Autobiographies / Anthology.

Discover the “tricks” of the trade

The facilitator of the writing workshop, which will take place in the premises of le Figaro will also be based on books that he may provide advice to participants. The workshop proposes to accompany each one in his own handwriting.

You will learn how to recognize the uniqueness of his own style, his own personal touch. The reworking of the texts, the attacks, the falls, the rhythms, the dialogues through a variety of exercises…

The work on the text and the discipline to keep it in function of its objectives is the essential purpose of this workshop. We will put in place many writing techniques and “tricks of the trade” of the business, because writing is also a technical. With examples of questions that the author asked most often: when is the replay? When to rewrite? On what materials to work with, the real, the imaginary, how do you link the two?

What we would like to achieve at the end of the six sessions: the participant leaves with a confidence and a discipline that allows him / her to go to the end of his project, because he wants to write for himself or herself or be published. We can fix it, after you have worked through the exercises, and as a goal the writing of a new.
