Flash Workshop: How to Brainstorm on a Poem

Flash Workshop: How to Brainstorm on a Poem

On May 13th, Tuesday, from 3 to 4 p.m., in room 5.2, WILL Lab’s team will be conducting a flash workshop on several fundamental brainstorming techniques (mind mapping and freewriting). By using William Carlos Williams’ poem “The Red Wheelbarrow” as a starting point, we hope to provide all participants with useful knowledge, easily appliable during the process of writing. All University of Lisbon’s students, who wish to work on creative strategies for generating ideas for a text, are welcome.
