If you are interested in exploring how to move beyond your shaggy dog story, insider jokes, and personal anecdotes to a narrative that is relevant and meaningful to other audiences – be it a prospective employer, academic major, or public debate, please join us!

CORE Pre-Departure Seminar: Writing to See, Seeing to Write
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Where: See event website
Description: CORE is a program within the International Studies Office designed to promote cross-cultural engagement through free seminars. Whether in an intercultural context, or just on a day-to-day basis, everyday spaces such as streets, sidewalks, intersections, and cafes prove to be rich with signification, if we can just stop for a moment and actually see them attentively. This seminar introduces some of the experimental writing techniques employed by French author Georges Perec in order to equip students to use creative writing as a means of gaining new visibility onto the everyday spaces in which they find temselves immersed. This seminar is part indoor presentation and discussion, part outdoor fieldwork.Find more information at our website, http://iso.virginia.edu/core
