The activity report of the Association for 2015 was presented at the Annual General Staff Meeting on 14 June 2016.
English language Writing Workshops under the auspices of Amicale offer seasoned as well as first-time writers with a chance to share their experiments in fiction and nonfiction, poetry and drama, within a trusted group. They also provide us with an opportunity to read, to analyze and model our writing in light of the narrative techniques of great works in English. They are a stimulant and hopefully an encouragement to put our insights, our ideas, and our memories into the best form, and using the most pertinent language we can command.
Open to all but limited to six per group, these workshops start in mid-September and end in mid-June of each year. They consist of ten monthly sessions of two hours each, and take place in the Agora building, on Thursday evenings between 18.00 – 20.00. Registration takes place on a first come first serve basis and dates for the workshops will be distributed in September. Interested participants can attend one “free” first session to begin with before deciding on joining the group; they are also welcome to participate in more than one workshop if they wish and can make up for the hours they have paid for in either group.
Registration for 2017/18 is already open and the first meeting has been fixed for Thursday September 21st. The deadline for registration will be at the beginning of October.
