In this advanced workshop for both native French speakers and French as an additional language speakers, receive group and instructor feedback on a major writing project or three smaller projects you are working on. Submissions may be related to your work or personal interests, or could be designed using creative prompts provided by your instructor, such as drafting a professional article for publication, producing an opinion piece, writing meaningful work correspondence, creating a manuscript for a children’s book or writing press releases, book summaries or other high caliber writing products.
Work independently following instructor cues to submit three documents for review and discussion in three interactive Zoom sessions throughout the course. Learn from feedback shared with your classmates about their work and delve deeper into the process of writing and refining your writing in French.
Participants should have an advanced level of French language and grammar and be looking to receive feedback on structure, style, grammar and composition in a way that will make their writing stand out in a professional way.
