A key milestone in a writer’s career is publication. At Young Writers Lab we have aimed to offer our young writers as many chances to experience a real writer’s life and publication of their work was the ultimate milestone to reach. Venue No 19 At The Fringe in Tranås welcomed a large crowd of writers, family and friends to the launches of poetry, short stories and novellas written by young people and published by Kultivera.
We were delighted that most of the writers could be present, and were happy to read their work and sign copies of their book. We also welcomed young people from Wales to read their work via video call.
