Often Past Oneself: Goals and Results in Creative Writing for L2 Learners of English

Aktivitet: Typer för tal eller presentation!!Oral presentation


How do the ends and means square up when a creative writing workshop functions as an advanced language course for Finnish L2 writers of English who are university students from a broad range of academic disciplines? This talk will peek into a running workshop to explore how its language-learning goals limit, expand or otherwise alter its traditional aesthetic goals and, in turn, how these goals match the individual intentions and desires of writer-participants. I will discuss to what extent the experience affects writer-participants' perceptions of the language they are using and of themselves as wielders of language.
