IMG_7459.jpg

Creative Writing Workshops are held on Saturdays in Valby. In every workshop we experiment with creative exercises, learn new techniques and write together. Everyone will leave the workshop with useful writing tools, new material and a warm, supportive writing community.

MAISON VERB SUMMER SERIES

 

The following workshops will be held Saturday 11am-2pm, location in Copenhagen TBD soon. Pastries, fresh fruit, coffee and tea will be served! Price per workshop is 750kr

FLASH FICTION & THE SHORT STORY: May 25  

Learn about pacing and escalation, character development, high-concept vs low-concept and revision. We will practice precision and you will leave the workshop with a first draft of a flash or short story. 

LIFE WRITING: June 1

We will revisit our own life experiences to generate material that can be used in various forms—from memoir writing to creative nonfiction.

WORKSHOP WORKSHOP: July 6

This workshop is capped at five writers with a structure inspired by Iowa Writers' Workshop. We will read up to 2000 words of each writer's piece in advance, then offer constructive feedback and have engaging conversations about each of the pieces. The writing must be sent 10 days in advance to give everyone enough time to read. 

FALL SERIES: MAISON VERB & BUNCH'S VINBAR

In the fall, Maison Verb and Bunch’s VINBAR are teaming up to offer Creative Writing Workshops in English at the bar. Saturdays, 11am-2pm, Coffee/tea included, with a thirty minute lunch break. 800 kr


NEW MATERIAL: October 12

We will experiment with new writing techniques and creative exercises to generate an abundance of raw material. We will explore character building, point of view, the use of objects in storytelling, dialogue, titling pieces and more.


WRITING MOTHERHOOD: November 23rd 

How do you capture motherhood in words? How do you translate an experience that is so transformative and expansive onto the page? In this workshop for mothers of every age, we will read and discuss short excerpts of pieces about motherhood, then revisit our own trove of memories and write creative nonfiction. This workshop is capped at eight writers so we have time to offer feedback on everyone’s pieces within the session. 

Payment for all workshops accepted via MobilePay or Paypal

TESTIMONIALS

"I have taken part in Fiona Picard's bi-weekly writing workshop since September 2022. Fiona has put in place the structures and processes that allow a dozen writers of varying levels - from beginners to published authors - to develop their craft and flourish as artists. She organises every two to three-hour session so that the writers can share their work and receive feedback; take part in spontaneous writing exercises; discuss writing techniques and share teaching materials. But most importantly, Fiona has built a community of trust, friendship, and collaboration. Each of us has found the confidence to share our work and open our hearts to feedback and support. If we believe that writing is not only a solitary endeavour but also one in which we learn from one another and share our ideas and inspiration, then Fiona's classes embody that ethos. We are lucky to have her."
