La escritura creativa en la enseñanza del español a niños y jóvenes
A workshop with Emma Romeu
This workshop will address how to introduce children and teenagers to creative writing in Spanish, working with the brief short-story genre. The topics covered in the book series Aventuras de Gregorio by Emma Romeu, which connects to subjects such as history, geography, art, natural sciences, and languages, will serve as inspiration for the workshop’s activities. These will involve the writing of brief short stories by the participants, some of which will be read aloud at the end of the workshop. To guide the creative process, materials on the book series will be made available, but other topics that arise during the practice may also be used.
