Following my trip to Jönköping Region in April, it's great to hear that new groups for Young Writers Lab have started up. Elisabeth is running a group with members from Jönköping, Nässjö, Vetlanda and Tranås meeting on line. Joke has worked with Kulltorpskolan near Gnosjö and Kultivera has published their book of photographs and poems, "Skogsboken". More on this soon
I've met with my new group in Holavedsgymnasiet, Tranås, who are a group of five aesthetic course students. They are performing a production of Alice in Wonderland this month, and have named their group "Sagolandet". They are interested in responding to nature and we'll work on some poetry and short stories. My recent meeting with them was interesting as I video-called them from a remote Welsh island, and was able to talk to them about the landscape and wildlife there. We began writing short stories based upon treasure seeking in their favourite places.
