In 2018, the Paris Writers Workshop is back! And centre-stage for the special festivities of the 40-year anniversary of WICE.
The WICE Paris Writers Workshop, our flagship event that runs in late spring every two years, has long been the cornerstone of our program. The quality of instruction in craft, technique, critiques, discussions and seminars for 48 writers has attracted candidates from the US, other countries around Europe, and right here in Paris.
Dimitri Keramitas, Director of WICE creative writing programs, aims to bring some synergy between this year’s Workshop and the rest of our writing courses. The range of both includes creative non-fiction, short stories, novels, and a new focus on poetry.
A Greek-American in love with Paris since the 1980’s, Dimitri has a degree in literature from the University of Hartford, in French from the Sorbonne, and law at from the University of London. He raised a son and daughter here, now students themselves.
Dimitri first joined WICE through taking part in the prestigious Paris Writers Workshop four times before eventually leading the organising committee.
For Dimitri, the priority is balance. For his own career, he’s balanced his solitary writing and translating activities with getting out and about teaching law and literature at universities, grandes écoles, and écoles de commerce.
