Joint seminar on “The Writer as Satirist”

Pieter-Dirk Uys visited Etienne van Heerden’s MA Creative Writing class at UCT, offering a seminar on the Writer as Satirist. Other participants in 2012’s second semester include Michiel Heyns (“The Writer as Translator”), Lauren Beukes (“The Writer as Futurist”), Deon Meyer (“The Writer as Detective”) and Leon de Kock (“The Writer as would-be Lover”). Apart from the seminars with invited writers, Van Heerden workshops flash fiction/sudden fiction texts and short stories written by the students (and inspired by the presentations by the visiting writers). In addition, he offers lectures on narrative strategies.
