Literacy writing workshops

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

This literacy workshop examines how creativity can favour control, independence and empowerment over the written language. It also analyses which type of initiation to writing may be targeted through creative approaches and the role of new information technologies in the development of the written expression.

Different participants endeavour to respond to these questions via workshops that they have organized in their respective countries:

  • Lire et Écrire Bruxelles presents writing and plastic art workshops which have resulted in the achievement of illustrated works carried out by literate and illiterate people.
  • AEFTI Marne describes a workshop based on playing games in order to undertake writing.
  • Lauder College (Scotland) mentions a writing experience carried out in a prison for women.
  • Moray Adult Literacies Partnership (MALP) in Scotland presents how to learn to write via the new information technologies (slideshows, video, photos, etc.)
