Rafa TurnesDescription of the workshop

Writing is a trade that can be learned. If you want to write, you can, but first you must know the techniques of a trade as old as the man: the storyteller. Because a story can take many forms: that of a story or a novel, yes, but also that of a conference, an advertisement or a biography.

The agenda of Creative Writing has been prepared by Enrique Páez, one of the pioneers of the teaching of creative writing in Spain. Enrique knows that the first step in writing a story is ... to start writing. Overcoming the fears associated with creation, freeing the imagination and knowing the techniques that allow you to express your talent (the characters, the construction of the scene, the visibility, the narrator, the time ...) are the objectives of this course. With your unbound writing and mastery of narrative techniques, the time will come to manipulate and transcend them.... [-]
