DAI Writing Center – Killing me Softly

  • Dealing with Insecurities and the Perception of Shame
  • Literatur, Social Activity

Welcome to our new DAI Writing Center – a uniquely creative and collaborative space for people of different ages, stages, and walks of life to write their stories, novels, poems, movie scripts etc. while benefiting from feedback and companionship from other writers.

The DAI Writing Center offers classes and workshops (in collaboration with our DAI Language School) on different literary genres – to give aspiring writers the tools and confidence to get started. We also host reading series, invite accomplished writers to share feedback to those getting started, organize focused writing sessions, and encourage participants to join our annual writing contests including the DAI Novel Prize for debut work.

After February’s topic “Writers without Borders – Personal Reflections on Immigration, Integration and Dislocation”, the theme for April, May and June will be:

“Killing me Softly” – Dealing with Insecurities and the Perception of Shame

The best-selling author Brené Brown defines “shame” as the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging. Between April and June, the DAI Writing Center invites you to write and reflect on such sentiments to give creative expression to recollections or situations that are challenging to describe despite being common features in the ‘ups’ and ‘downs’ of life.
