"Ne pas écrire hors-sol": l'atelier d'écrivain et les mutations de la figure auctoriale

Translated title of the contribution: The writer's workshop: transformations of the role of the author in contemporary France

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The past few decades have witnessed the rapid development of creative writing workshops in France, with a growing number of established authors taking part. Building on interviews with ten writers, this article explores the motivations behind their involvement in workshops, ideas around the transmission of writing, and the influence of workshops on their own personal writing practice.
In light of these findings, the article argues for the notion of a writer's workshop, which contributes to the professionalisation of writing and authorship while allowing for individual conceptions of writing to be expressed. Through its questions and methodology, this study offers new ways of understanding the dynamics at play within writing workshops, while shedding light on con-
temporary evolutions of the writer figure and of the very idea of literature.
