With a creative and educational drive, Jean Boucro And Lisa Michaud, two third-year LLCER English students at the Université Franche-Comté are launching a writing competition open to all, immersing participants in the fascinating worlds of utopia and dystopia. With topical themes such as transition, climate change and feminism, the competition promises to showcase unquestionable writing skills while making people think about the essential questions of our time.

The emergence of an ambitious project

Born out of the degree's enriching educational framework in foreign and regional English language, literature and culture, the program is a continuation of Jean and Lisa's studies, with a strong desire to combine a passion for the English language with social commitment. The “Pre-Professionalization” course combined the literary genres of writing and science fiction and fantasy, giving them the perfect opportunity to implement a personal English-speaking project.

Proposed challenge : Create a literary work, poem or short story in English that explores one of the imposed themes – time, environmental issues or feminism through the prism of reflective utopia or dystopia.
