From a white page to a first text version in only one day – Writing in flow

WWB Area | Learning field
Work and management techniques | Writing

Starting point
Imagine yourself in front of a blank page that needs to be filled. You don’t know where to start? Or you start here and there, but you are not quite sure how to put these parts together?

We show you a strategy with which you compose a draft fast. You start by zero, a blank page and pursue the project until you have produced a first satisfying text version. Sounds unrealistic for two days? But that’s what we aspire to achieve.

You are familiar with an effective writing method to produce a first text version within one day.

During our writing day, we will dive deep into methods of non-linear raw texting.

Alternating impulse lectures practicing non-linear raw texting sessions; followed by focus-sessions on your raw version of a text to improve it towards a first version.
Max. number of participants: 12.

We invite you to challenge yourself, e.g. by selecting a project you have procrastinated for some time. This may be: the chapter of a book, a research exposé, journal article, lecture or application. We start from the blank page. This can be a powerful kick-off.
Student workers are welcome, subject to availability.
