Écrivaines amateurs et écritures biographiques en ateliers d’écriture

Abstract : The article analyses the writings of "self" of amateur writers which are produced within writing workshops. Interactions in these groups are structured by the principles of "caring" and "listening" to each other, which encourages the expression of feelings and legitimates to "speak of oneself" by having the "concern to make literary". In this context, the matter si not to learn academically what "doing literary means", but to incorporate it in a practical way by writing from instructions proposed by the animator of the sessions and by exposing his texts to the others. Therefore, the writing workshop constitutes an original institutional framework where one learns a certain way of "saying oneself" as well as producing a text framed by formal and stylistic preoccupations. These types of writing are more particularly used by working class respondents who are in social ascension and who have taken advantage of family transmission of a scriptural culture which enabled to build an interest for literary practices
