Creative Writing for Academics
Workshop with Kip Jones
11 & 12 January 2019
Friday (10- 3) and Saturday (10-2),
11th and 12th January in EBC.
FREE! But you must register
and commit to participating for the two full days.
All are very welcome: students, staff & academics.
Places are limited and will fill up quickly.
By engaging in creative writing, it becomes possible for all to write more clearly, more simply, even more creatively, when writing for academic publication.
The workshop will present opportunities to work with new and creative levels through interfaces with techniques from the arts and humanities—fiction, poetry, auto-ethnography and biography, scriptwriting, techniques from filmmaking, including tags and loglines.
These intellectual exchanges encourage joint exploration of how authors can engage with principles and tools from the arts in order to expand and extend the possibilities of reaching wider audiences.
Wednesday, 5 Dec 1pm for an hour in RLH 409, experiment with the delights of
Creative Writing for Academics, a taster session, with Kip Jones.
“We passionately believe that as narrative researchers & storytellers we must promote narrative in the content & styles of our publications.
Publication or presentation that is counter to this does a disservice to our commitments as narrativists”.
…and if you enjoy the session and want more, there will be a two-day workshop 11 & 12 January.
You will be able to sign up for the workshop at the CQR seminar taster session!
The two-day workshop will be FREE! But you must commit to participating for the two full days. Places are limited and will fill up quickly.
Come along to the Taster Session on Wed 5 Dec at 1 pm, RLH 409, and have a go! It’s fun and you won’t be disappointed!
Coming … 11 & 12 January.
Free! Further details soon! Sign up at the following event:
Taster Session: Wednesday, 5 Dec, CQR Seminar, RLH 409 1-2 p.m.
A two-day FREE workshop in creative writing with Kip Jones for Bournemouth University staff and students only.
Writing week: Wednesday 3 Jan and Thursday 4 Jan.
Wed: 9:30 – 3:30
Thurs 9:30 – 12:30 (followed by lunch at La Piccola Italia)
Executive Business Centre, 7th Floor
Places are limited, but the workshop is free. Please express your interest by emailing Kip asap. You will be expected to attend for both days, and attend the lunches. You are asked to buy your own refreshments and lunches, but we will eat together at a restaurant each day. The first day we will go to the International Centre next to EBC for lunch. The second day, we will have a concluding longer lunch at La Piccola Italia Restaurant, near EBC. Writing is a very solitary endeavor. Sharing of experiences and conviviality are important components of a balanced approach.
Summary: The Creative Writing workshop will be a unique event in that it will not be a typical ‘writing retreat’ (with trees to hug and lots of time to ruminate), but rather a very active experience with lots of exercises, suggestions and supportive feedback on participants’ work from Kip Jones and other participants. The point is to encourage both students and academics who would like to include more creative writing in their outputs, particularly those whose writing includes reporting on narrative and other qualitative methods of research. It also helps immensely in the move to publishing in the wider world of blogs and online outlets, moving work to media and film, auto-ethnography and even fiction.
Justification: The important point of Creative Writing for Academics is to help academics and students achieve the goal of seeing more of their work read by wider audiences; in other words, impact. By providing an intense two-day experience for participants to engage in developing writing skills, the playing field is levelled and opportunities for facilitated learning developed. By engaging in creative writing, it becomes possible for all to write more clearly, more simply, even more creatively, when writing not only for academic publications, but also for outlets previously unimagined.
Methods: The workshop will present opportunities to work with academic material and expand its means of production and dissemination to new and creative levels through interfaces with techniques from the arts and humanities, including blog and magazine writing, film treatments and scripts, and poetry and fictional exercises. These intellectual exchanges encourage joint exploration of how researchers can engage with principles and tools from the arts in order to expand and extend the possibilities of dissemination of research data. Concepts of creativity itself will evolve and be transformed by participants’ outlooks and willingness to engage with unfamiliar territory. These processes comprise ‘facilitated learning’—in that knowledge will be gained as a secondary goal through a process of developing new relationships through small group problem-solving and self examination, grounded in personal past experience and knowledge.
Not to be missed!
