Kosovo 2.0 invites you to register for a workshop to develop your creative writing and research skills, organized within the Lokomotiva 2.0 program funded by the Prince Claus Fund.
The workshop “Research methods, writing and publication” will be held on September 7 and 8, 2021 from 10:00 to 15:00, at K2.0. The application deadline is September 2, 2021.
In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn what research is, how to approach different social topics, what are the research methods and how to apply them, how to identify and quote sources and more.
On the first day (September 7) you will learn about the basics of creative writing, stories, narratives and literary genres. Participants will choose a genre and work on a short literary essay. This task will be assigned to you on the first day and must be completed by the second day of the workshop.
During the second day (September 8), participants will discuss some examples of good beginnings of books, stories or essays. Then they will compare them with their writings. Some editing techniques will also be discussed and there will be an exchange of ideas for future projects, focusing specifically on the topics of gender, ethnicity, race and religion. This workshop will lay the groundwork for the jobs that participants will perform in the future.
We invite young journalists, researchers, activists and other interested individuals who want to express themselves through published articles to apply for this workshop, led by the writer Artrit Bytyçi and psychologist Adea Kondirolli.
The workshop will be held in the event space at the offices of Kosovo 2.0 (St. Ferat Dragaj nr 25 | behind Furra Qerimi 1, in Sunny Hill, Prishtina).
For those who need, translation into English and Serbian will be provided.
Applicants will be notified via email about the status of their application. The deadline for registration is September 2, 2021.
The sections on Writing and Publishing were developed in collaboration with StoryLab.
Lokomotiva 2.0 is supported by the Prince Claus Fund.
