A workshop using texts from contemporary literature to write on the themes of science fiction, divination and predictions with Laura Vasquez.

The writing workshop takes as its starting point extracts from the work of the Taiwanese poet Hsia Yu, 'Salsa', and an extract from a poem by the Norwegian author Inger Wold Lund, published in the contemporary poetry magazine Muscle.

A few instructions and formal guidelines will help participants to get started quickly. Each participant will experiment with different types of writing, from narrative to poetic fragments.

This workshop is also a space for exchange and discussion, sharing and giving voice to texts, according to the wishes of each participant. It's for anyone who wants to write, whatever their motivation or experience.
