“What changes, endures” – by Rainis

Rainis – an ambitious idealist, dreaming of a new type of human, and of an independent Latvian Nation. Aspazija – a rebellious, extravagant, fearless woman, ready to bring changes to old-fashioned 19th century society. Both are Latvian poets, both are fighters, both are different, but united by love. (by Unesco) With their publishing activities Rainis & Aspazija also raised the issue of the freedom of expression and freedom of the press.

Have you ever thought of writing a book, or even just a short story? Here's your chance!
Showcase your creativity in our Microfiction Challenge!

With a Protected content limit, this is something we can all accomplish. And even more! You can write your short story in your own mother language or in a language you would like to practice.

We do not impose a specific theme for this edition. So, unlock your imagination!
Post your stories in the comments on this activity’s wall so we can all read through them. Feel free to submit as many as you like.

We’ll all meet up via Zoom on Wednesday, July 29 to enjoy discovering our literary creations together. See you there!

Post Scriptum: with your explicit permission given in advance, we are planning to compile your short stories from the Protected content 350 words events in an E-Book which will be presented during a common zoom-videoconference co-hosted by the “Literature Group Seattle” and the “Language and Literature Group Riga”, at the end of this year.
