Writing Workshop Opportunities in Paris

Andrea Christmas
January 21, 2020

The American University of Paris has two 2020 summer institutes that may be of interested to members of The Loft.

The first is our Creative Writing Institute, which offers participants the opportunity to write and share poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction in a workshop-style format working with our accomplished faculty members, Siân Dafydd, Biswamit Dwibedy, and Amanda Dennis. This year we are pleased to offer two competitive travel stipends of up to €500 each to outstanding Creative Writing Institute participants. All participants who wish to be considered for the travel stipends must submit their applications by March 1, 2020. Winners will be announced in early April.

2020 also marks the inaugural year of our International Journalism Institute. Over this intensive three-week course, participants will learn how to navigate a foreign city in search of news, meet the professionals who work a foreign beat, and learn how to compile and file a multimedia story under time pressure. Participants will learn with expert AUP Global Communications faculty and guests from organizations like France 24, Le Monde, and Agence France-Presse and, by the end of the three-week summer school, will have a small multimedia portfolio.

For more information, please visit our summer school website, where students can learn more about housing, extracurricular cultural excursions, and how to apply.
