In a world bombarded by information and networking, we still crave the slow pace of fiction and the opportunity for quiet, contemplative reading. What is it about the language of fiction and biography that so intrigues us? And how do the novel and short story still manage to offer us the best perspective on the human condition?

In a series of six sessions, lecturer Gretel Furner will examine the various voices of fiction, from science fiction to autobiography, to find out how one finds one’s own voice as a writer. Each of us has a unique voice and message to share, but how do you develop it? If the creative-writing process intrigues you, join us and find out. You might be surprised.

Instructor: Dr Gretel Furner. Oxford University. PhD on the modern novel, University of the Saarland, Germany. Assoc. Professor of German, George Washington University.  Instructor, the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Since 2003 instructor at WICE in French Literature and History, the Migrant Soul series and Creative Writing.
