Hello, 2018! We hope you will bring us new opportunities to develop our communities of creators and optimize our efforts. We already have some plans for this year, but all will be revealed at the right time.
Soooo, let’s start the inventory of the things we did in the last two months.
News from Club Revdepov
In December the creative writing workshop taught by Bogdan-Alexandru Stănescu and Cezar Paul-Bădescu came to an end. When we got to the last meeting, we were surprised to see the alumni had already started the party!
The same place also hosted the second edition of the children literature workshop with Adina Popescu.
We had yet another calligraphy workshop led by Bine Scris and Another Outsider. This January we are proud to celebrate 4 years since the first edition of the workshop, in 2014. Many thanks to our teachers and the lovely places that hosted the workshop, especially Lente in recent years.
Our ongoing workshop, Creative Writing Sundays was honored by the presence of writers Oliviu Crâznic, Bogdan-Alexandru Stănescu and Mihai Radu. Unfortunately no pic of Oliviu, must be because we were absorbed by his class.
We also have some news from our alumni. Alexandra Medaru published a poetry book and Tudor Ganea received the Young Writer Award for the second year in a row, for his novel – „Miere”.
News from Academia Motanov
We finally published the stories written by children at the workshop taught by Adina Rosetti last autumn. You can read them here.
News from Revista de Povestiri
New selected short stories written at our workshops are now available to read on the magazine website.
Many thanks to writer Maria Manolescu who selected the stories we received for our regular short stories contest. Read the chosen stories here. Be sure to send us a story for the current contest, where the appointed juror is writer Matei Florian.
We also published an interview with writer Lavinia Bălulescu and two book reviews written by Andreea Apostu: for „Imperiul pisicilor”, by Alex Tocilescu and for „Bărbatul care nu voia să se dea jos din pat”, by David Lodge.
Coach Magda Bunea volunteered again to train Ajungem Mari team to improve communications skills. Ajungem Mari is an NGO that deals with children in foster care – they have volunteers who teach different school subjects. We are proud Magda contributed to their confidence and capacity to deal with all kinds of communication situations.
Last but not least, the forms for redirecting 2% of taxes to our NGO are now available for download here. Thank you for your support!
