On three Mondays in October 2019 a multilingual writing workshop, Colourful Writing, was organised at Luckan in Helsingfors (Helsinki). The workshop leader was the author Sabira Ståhlberg and the working languages were Swedish and English, with addition of several other languages.
The participants wrote partly their own stories, inspired by life and their surroundings, and partly they took inspiration from an interesting photography exhibition at Luckan. The other participants’ stories and the lively discussion about various themes also inspired their writing.
Haiku, poems, short stories and textual snapshots were part of the rich programme. Some of the texts have been published in Swedish and English on the Colorit ry.rf. website.
