Black Forest Writing Seminars 2016
*Applications are now closed. Any further applications received will be placed on a waiting list.
Black Forest Writing Seminars take place for two weeks each summer at the University of Freiburg, in Freiburg, a lively, enchantingly beautiful city in southwest Germany, a city of international flavor much favored by students.
Operated by the University of Freiburg, and by Germany's top-ranking English department, the program attracts students of all kinds and all ages, European, as well as Australian, African, Asian, Canadian and American. It's a unique, rich, vital matrix for learning writing, offering much in the way of history, culture and nature - including a two-day writing retreat in the Black Forest and culminating in a reading by students and faculty.
The 2016 program includes courses in the writing of fiction and nonfiction, taught by internationally-known writers and scholars. Classes are conducted in English, each class meeting daily (except Sundays) for two weeks. Classes are capped at fifteen, offering intimate environments for learning and for much individual attention. The program features a culminating reading by students and faculty, as well as a two-day/one-night writing retreat at a mountain chalet in the Black Forest.
