In 2018 people in Czech Republic celebrate 100 years of Czech and Slovak history. Let’s Write! celebrates too! Write a short story based on one of these suggestions:
You find an old photograph at your grandmother’s cottage. Suddenly the room starts to disappear and you find yourself in the photograph. It’s the year 1918. Write a short story about what happens next.
It’s an early August morning in 1968. You’ve been awakened by a loud rumbling outside your house. You go to the window and see tanks rolling down the street. Write a story about what happens next.
Czechoslovakia was founded in 1918. Imagine you were in the room with Masaryk, Beneš and Štefánik and part of the discussions about what the new country should be like. Write a short story about the experience.
You look down at your grandfather’s old watch and suddenly, the hands start to turn wildly. You find yourself transported to a key moment in Czech history. Write a story about what happens.
Write a short story starting with ‘On my 100th birthday…’
Imagine Masaryk and his wife travel in time to the modern-day Czech Republic. As they walk the streets of Prague, what would they think? Write a short story about their experience, feelings and observations of contemporary Czech life.
Write a short story starting with ‘I woke up, looked at the calendar and realized I’d been sleeping for 100 years’s.
