They keep in touch with each other online and regularly consult our literary consultant.
We have held two workshops so far, which gave the participants the chance to meet in person:
- In October 2018 in Budapest
- In January 2019 in Szentendre
In these workshops, authors worked together to develop the plot of a novel, as well as its main characters. In addition, they got to know the setting for the book.
