This project aims to engage young migrants in managing a more sustainable lifestyle, increase awareness toward a sustainable and ecological living urban environment and raise the discussion on climate changes.
We invite you to join the Youth Included Writing Retreat.
* Genres, their clear and blurred boundaries
* Fears of novice writers, getting started with text, where to get inspiration from and whether you need it.
* Building a plot, what should be avoided in the text, how to "squeeze out excess water." Fighting bureaucrats.
* How to protect your ideas from misinterpretation.
Accommodation (near Prague) and the program are free, food at your expense.
