Let’s Write! 2018


Dear all participants in the 2018 Let’s Write Contest. Thank you so much for being part of this contest.  We saw a remarkable number of excellent stories this year.  We noticed a dramatic increase in the quality of the stories compared to the last year.  Perhaps this was because the topics were more difficult than last year – so a special congratulations to you for taking on the challenge of writing about Czech history (or imagining the future).  We hope the contest motivated you to explore and experiment with a new theme or style or writing. It was very difficult to choose the winners.

You will be able to read all of them in our e-book  coming out by June 1. Here you can read the winning stories. are links to the winning stories:
