CONTENT: The creative writing workshop “Ready, steady, write!” is meant for teachers who want to express themselves creatively. The workshops revolves around different writing tasks, out of which some are meant for individuals, and some to be created and developed in a group. The tasks are versatile and utilise different creative writing methods. The written texts can be read out, but no one is forced to do it.
The aim of the workshop is to give teachers and tutors a chance to have fun. The main fun will come from the writing tasks themselves, and from reading and sharing them. The workshop is very well suitable for team building.
