Strasbourg Write a Story 2020

Creative Writing Workshop with Hal D’Arpini, Detroit & München

To promote the English-language short story competition “Strasbourg Write A Story” the competition’s organizing committee is sponsoring a creative writing workshop in our library.
The session’s topic, “Narration,” is drawn from Ursula Le Guin’s book on creative writing, Steering The Craft. Along the way, participants will be encouraged to ask questions about the subject matter and will be engaged in writing exercises that will give them the opportunity to flex their writing muscles. By the end, they hopefully will feel enthusiastic enough to enter the competition, but this is not obligatory.
The workshop will be led by Hal D’Arpini, a founding member of the SXB Write A Story competition and its webmaster. Hal is from the Detroit area of the U.S. and lived in Strasbourg for seven years before moving to Munich in 2017. While in Strasbourg, Hal worked as an English teacher and led a creative writing group. He has been leading writing workshops on behalf of the competition for the past several years, here in Freiburg and elsewhere.
