Attending a week course in children’s and young peoples´ literature – for authors, illustrators, publishers and critics – professionals, semi professionals, and amateurs – in the beautiful settings at Vallekilde Højskole. Intense days and nights brimming with new ideas, stories and techniques – performed by funny, strange, intelligent and interesting people, doesn´t that sound terrific?

The daily programme includes lectures, mornings and evenings and – what interests me the most – the afternoon workshops in writing and illustrations! Of course I´ve signed up for the illustrators’ class conducted by Lillian Brøgger and Rasmus Bregnhøj, a really consciousness expanding, ass kicking experience…guess I´m still flying…with new seeds of in my pockets, in my shoes, heart and mind.

It is like an injection of inspiration given in a very concentrated but still relaxed way. All meals are served, everything is provided for. You only have to focus on the stuff that interests you! I think everybody, no matter of age, status or whatever deserves a stay like this – at LEAST once a year!

So it’s probably not breaking news that I’m totally drenched – but happy! So long Vallekilde!

    Sounds wonderful, I need a break like that! I would like to run one myself one day… when I live somewhere nice and relaxing that is, not in hectic London!
