This programme guides six talented writers and illustrators from six different European countries to produce inclusive stories for children. Each participant is matched to a mentor from their own country. The mentor is an experienced author or illustrator with a large network and coaches the participants in writing or drawing stories.
During the programme, the participants follow workshops and online masterclasses to deepen their knowledge of inclusive storytelling. Residencies will give participants the opportunity to further work on their stories while being in a new environment.
The Talent Development Programme is developed by ROSE stories and financially supported by the Dutch Foundation for Literature.
