English Taster - Charlotta Salmi - Looking at Atrocity in Graphic Narratives 

Zoom Meeting

 https://qmul-ac-uk.zoom.us/j/85935692009?pwd=NGdKR3BKUmxhQm5WR0NnMzlPaVdkUT09

In this seminar we will explore how graphic narratives use visual and textual means to represent atrocity. By analyzing extracts from Art Spiegelman's holocaust memoir Maus (1991) we'll think about how witnessing is captured on the page and encouraged by the text. What does it mean to witness atrocity? And what kind of reading is looking?

Creative Writing Taster: 'Write What You Know' with Michael Hughes

Zoom Meeting

https://zoom.us/j/93489747323?pwd=NmlmNnVYUFZxdzJKbFdjeTRnelBFQT09

“Write what you know” is one of the most famous pieces of writing advice, but what does it really mean? Why is it so valuable to use our own life as raw material for imaginative writing? And how do we actually put it into practice?

This session will introduce techniques which allow a writer to gather raw material from their own personal experience, and begin to explore how it might form the basis of a piece of fiction. You will have the chance to experiment with a few of the fundamental techniques we offer Creative Writing students at Queen Mary, including Free Writing, Creative Visualisation, Prompts and Live Writing. Please bring a pen, and some paper or a notebook, as we will be writing longhand during the session.
