The Munich Readery


Setting is often combined with character. How do our characters feel about their locations? Remember, what is heaven for one person is hell for another, and that response needs to be explicit in our setting. Moving people into new settings can also be an exciting development in writing. How do people change when they move from school to university, from their chilly home to a sunny beach? We’ll start by reading some different texts showing a range of settings.

This workshop is the second in a series of four led by Vivienne Arnold. The workshop series lets participants try their hand at creative writing in a supportive and fun environment. You will be encouraged to write and share short creative exercises, to give group feedback, and to experience the joy of writing creatively in English. Bring a pen, writing paper, and bags of enthusiasm and be ready to inspire yourself – and others!

Register for one or all workshop dates.

About Vivienne Arnold:
Since I was a little girl I’ve been writing, but I started in earnest about eleven years ago at a creative writing workshop here in Munich. In 2018 I completed an MA at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK, in Creative Writing with Pedagogic Studies. I meet regularly with other writers where we submit and critique our novels-in-progress. For the past almost twenty years, I’ve been teaching English in the Anglistik department of the LMU.
