Workshop for bloggers at Conrad Festival

The aim of this two-day workshop is to develop practices of quality presentation regarding the critique of culture-related texts in the internet. 

During practical classes Paulina Małochleb (literary critic, author of blog Książki na ostro) and Marcin Wilk (journalist, author of blog Wyliczanka) will accentuate the literary and broadly defined aesthetic sides of a seemingly innocent pursuit of publishing critical texts online. We will be correcting our own texts, commenting on those by other authors and wondering how to stand out, how to pick materials for review, how to publish and who to work with. The hosts will indicate the basic elements of a well-written and well-presented review/interview/recommendation, using a selected range of literary texts as source materials – prose and non-fiction pieces by the Conrad Festival guests. The classes will finish with a presentation, evaluation and discussion of materials drawn up throughout the workshop.

We are waiting for your applications till 28 September 2017. Admission of participants will be based on their posts on a blog (or other online medium where they present their reviews) or on a sample review text.

ATTENTION: Admission is free of charge. Just sign up at Evenea.pl and send the downloaded ticket along with a sample text directly to:blogerzy@conradfestival.pl. Please provide the text as a link or attachment to your e-mail.
