NIPÅ invites 5 young people aged 16-17 from Åland to participate in a creative printer workshop on the island of Kihnu in Estonia together with other young people from all over the Baltic!
The workshop, which extends over three days, is led by the Danish author Caroline Ørsum. The language is English, but everyone writes in their own native language. The focus during the workshop will be on short stories.
When? April 24-27, 2019
Where? Kihnu, Estonia
For who? 16-17 year olds
Main organizer: The Nordic Council of Ministers' office in Estonia.
The registration of interest has now unfortunately been closed. (It was open March 4th-24th)
We select 5 participants to the Creative Writing Camp 2019 on the basis of motivation and interest. We will contact everyone who has registered. If you have any questions, you are most welcome to contact project manager email@example.com.
You will get step-by-step guidance on how to write a story, tools for creative writing, tips and techniques on how to build a document and create compelling characters. The focus will be on short stories so that during the workshop you will have time to create one or more stories from beginning to end. In the program, lectures and instructions are interspersed with time to work on their own story, as well as discussions and feedback. You will also have time to get acquainted with the island of Kihnu.
You can find the detailed program further down on this page.
