Doctoral researchers of all disciplines of the Berlin University Alliance (Freie Universität, Humboldt-Universität, Technische Universität und Charité).


Sometimes, creative writing and academic writing appear to be two different things entirely. That’s partly because academic writing is often experienced as a rather dry and painstaking process the results of which are equally dry and painstaking to consume. However, there is a number of deep and very interesting connections between these two modes of writing. And in this workshop, you will have the chance to explore them. Doing so will not only be tremendous fun but also help you to reflect and develop the repertoire of techniques and styles that you apply in your academic writing. 


For workshops held online, participation is allowed under the following conditions: a working camera that is turned on and a microphone to allow active participation in discussions and group work. Headphones must also be used to protect other participants from office eavesdroppers. In this context, we would also like to refer to the rules for digital courses at Freie Universität Berlin (Code of Conduct).
