Writing is an astonishing journey in search of ourselves, a unique way to engage with time and space, an antidote to angst.
Writing as a means for emancipation, self-examination, and free expression: making its Milanese debut is MOLLY BLOOM, the creative writing school named after the James Joyce character and her famous soliloquy. The initiative was launched in 2016 in Rome by Leonardo Colombati and Emanuele Trevi, and includes teaching from Paolo Giordano, Alessandro Piperno, Sandro Veronesi (all winners of the Strega Prize) and Jhumpa Lahiri (Pulitzer Prize).
BASE’s Learning Machine acquires not one, but two new cogs; the fiction course entitled “La Cura” and its poetry counterpart, “Scrivere poesia oggi”.
The school doesn’t set out to turn its students into professional writers, so much as to provide and establish the prerequisites for a daily writing practice, which is one of the best ways to get to know yourself and the world. Because when the imagination works properly, it acts as a reflection of our consciousness.
A technical yet emotional path, laid out in 11 sessions, designed to uncover writing and its ability to create resonance and ministry, and to open up worlds. Stories as a cure for your ills, but above all as a tool for learning about yourself.
From October 25 to March 21, in the BASE Milano training rooms.

Can you be taught to write? And furthermore, can you be taught to write poetry? The Molly Bloom poetry teachers are asking themselves these very questions and will try to give you and your fellow participants an answer over the course of this new initiative as part of the BASE Learning Machine.
Teachers: Franco Buffoni, Gilda Policastro, Guido Mazzoni, Vivian Lamarque, Milo De Angelis.
