Student in literary research and creative writing
Barnabé Crespin-Pommier is a writer and a Master’s student at Cergy Paris University, as well as an intern at Éditions LIBRE. He has previously completed a Master 1 in linguistics, co-accredited by Paris 3 and Paris 7, and was also awarded the 4th « Prix du Jeune Écrivain 2022 ». His research focuses on contemporary francophone medieval-fantastic fantasy. It is based on a corpus of two unfinished sagas: Les sentiers des Astres (Stefan Platteau) and Le Cycle de Syffe (Patrick Dewdney). Barnabé questions the contours of this genre and the creative processes of the authors, from world-building to putting a story into words. The creative part of his master’s thesis is the incipit of his first fantasy novel.
