Voy a contar por qué, no solo fue porque me divertí, es también porque al final de cada taller, todos los niños terminaban con una historia (hecha y escrita por ellos!), un pequeño personaje salido nada mas y nada menos que de un cuento de Kafka y lo mejor, una gran sonrisa en sus caras!
Próximo año, cruzo dedos para volver a participar en otro taller!!
For the second time, i've could participate on the International book fair in my town, with a workshop for kids of 7 to 9 years old, it was a challenge! it's not easy to explain Kafka to kids of that age, but you know what? the challenge wasn't just talk about that, but do it in the way to make it seems easy... I tell you what, with all that matters and build a workshop wasn't a easy thing (they rejected a couple of my ideas until the 3rd one was finally accepted..) i've got to say that i finished exhausted, because most of the week during the morning i was working by myself with the help of the guys of the college, the social services as assistants, with cold because of course kids contagious me, voiceless but so, so happy!
i'll explain you why, it was not just because i had tons of fun, is also because at the end of every session, all the kids leave the room with a finished story (totally written by them!), a small character from a Kafka story and also with a big smile in their faces!
Next year, i cross my finger to be part again with another workshop!
