Finding Your Voice in French: The Power of Writing


Develop your authorial voice in French. Whether you want to make readers laugh or cry, how can you use nuance, word choice, a sense of language rhythm to create impact? Study a multitude of texts for inspiration, from Nobel Prize winners to those who rebel and write, or sing, from the margins, using and creating language in powerful and innovative ways. Write in many forms--children's stories, poetry, persuasive speech, essays, literary fiction--expanding the space for self-expression and the power and possibilities of your own multilingualism. Close reading, discussion of craft, journaling and creative writing, workshopping, peer feedback, revision. Prerequisite: French 204, AP score of 5, or equivalent.
