Each two-hour session combines lecture and workshop, exploring the representation of movement in creative writing, including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. The first hour, with Jenny Bavidge, will include a short lecture and close-reading as a group, exploring the representation of movement in literature past and present. The second hour, led by Midge Gillies, will offer an opportunity for you to experiment with your own creative response and writing. We will use the idea of 'flight' (of a bird, a set of stairs or from danger, for example) as prompts to explore different ways of writing about movement.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
