Tell your own story and listen to the stories of others. We all have something to tell, real or invented stories, from our family or relatives, or something we have heard. Life in Finland and elsewhere and meetings between people can be sources for funny, thought-provoking and interesting stories.

Join us for an exciting trip into the world of writing and discover different possibilities to be creative with words. You can also develop your language skills and find new ways of expression.

We will write in Swedish and other languages and discuss the texts together in Swedish, English or other languages. You are free to decide if you want to participate in one, two or all three workshops.

The workshops are guided by writer, translator and researcher Sabira Ståhlberg. Sabira writes books in several languages and teaches creative and multilingual writing internationally.

Also Sissel Korpisola, literary researcher, development expert at HY+ and previously responsible at Luckan for the ESF-project Stora Komet – vägledningsprojektet på svenska i Nyland, participates.

The workshops are supported by The Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland.
