The Paris Writers Workshop (PWW) has been WICE’s flagship creative writing program for over 25 years. Held in Paris every two years, it is taught by distinguished and award-winning faculty. We had one of our most successful workshops in 2018 and hope to repeat this accomplishment in 2020. In the meantime, WICE and the PWW are presenting a smaller, more intimate and more intense workshop in June 2019. Places will be limited to 12, so register early to ensure your participation, and also to benefit from an early-bird rate!
The PWW Writing Weekend will take place June 28-29-30. A master class in novel writing will be taught by Nicola Keegan, the author of Swimming (Alfred Knopf), which received rave reviews from the New York Times, Washington Post, and other publications. The novel has been translated into several languages and was named a Top Ten novel by Time Magazine. Nicola is renowned for her inclusive and enthusiastic style of teaching.
The workshop tuition includes two “writing craft” talks presented by Susan Tiberghien (director of the Geneva Writers Conference) and Alecia McKenzie (award-winning author of Satellite City and the novel Sweetheart) plus a panel discussion on the writer and the publishing world featuring literary agent Gregory Messina and authors Alecia McKenzie and Caroline Vu (award-winning author of two novels: Palawan Story and That Summer in Provincetown). All participants are invited to meet at an opening reception at WICE, read their work at a lovely bookshop, and enjoy a closing cocktail at a Parisian café-restaurant.
Paris has seen a proliferation of writing conferences and workshops, but WICE’s Paris Writers Workshop is the original event for writers in the French capital, with a record of quality going back 25 years. We are a non-profit association proud to keep its workshop affordable, and we insist on a teaching format in which students are given the greatest individual attention. We hope to see you this June!
