This creative writing workshop will explore Fernando Pessoa’s Book of Disquiet (in the English translation by Richard Zenith) and its digital archive (LdoDas https://ldod.uc.pt/) as source for diverse writing experiments. Its major aim is to develop a critical understanding of the process of writing with attention paid to human and computer-assisted writing.
