April 1, 2022 – Irina Papancheva taught her first creative writing classes between 20 January and 31 March 2022 by invitation and in collaboration with the Bulgarian Cultural Association in Belgium. The classes consisted of weekly sessions, handouts with a reading list for each topic, prepared by the author, assignments and feedback (written feedback by Irina Papancheva and verbal feedback from all the participants in the class).
See below some of the feedback from the participants:
“This creative writing course has been a real eye opener for me. Irina has done a great job introducing us to fundamentals of creating writing without overpowering us with complexities of the relevant topics. Her feedback on our stories has been helpful and encouraging. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is aspiring to learn the basics of creative writing and start writing.”

“Irina Papancheva’s creative writing classes really helped me focus on my writing and dedicate more time to it. They also allowed me to focus on one aspect of my writing at a time, which I really needed to better understand where I need to improve. The handouts were excellent. Irina’s detailed feedback on my writing also exceeded my expectations.”
