Creative Writing Workshop - Page Richards

Co-presented with the HKU MFA Programme, join Page Richards, Professor and Chair of Interdisciplinary Theatre and Creative Writing at The University of Hong Kong for a creative writing workshop.

In this Creative Writing Workshop, you are a designer. As Maya Angelou puts it, The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart. This takes care, and, more, it asks extraordinary and new knowledge of yourself, more than you knew you were already carrying! In this Workshop, therefore, you are briefly studying exquisite craft of self-invention in Creative Writing, as well as treasuring your initial vision. You will become increasingly aware of making something, and discovering the decisions that the creative writer and fellow artists encounter, as they go. You will be joining with fellow writers and readers, exploring your original work, and looking ahead to sending it out fo wider audiences.


Page Richards, Chair of Interdisciplinary Theatre and Creative Writing at HKU, received her Ph.D. from Harvard University and MFA from Boston University.
