Social science writing can sometimes feel a little bit dry and dull. Taking this into consideration, the aim of the workshop is to help students engage with creative forms of writing and practice storytelling. The workshop wants to offer a space for theoretical reflections, concrete examples and practical writing exercises that allow and encourage participants to attempt more lively scientific writing. In particular, we want to think about ways to narrate the everyday and bring the liveliness of our fieldwork experiences and research materials into the writing.
The workshop is co-organized by the geography program and the gender program of the CUSO.

We would like participants to submit a 500-word writing sample in advance of the workshop. This can be an extract of their fieldnotes or preferably the incipit of a draft version of a narrative piece. This will be the base for our discussions on writing and graphic storytelling. Participants will then be able to expand on those pieces of writing during the workshop.
