Today a creative meeting took place online with young and adult readers of the Kalevala region. Thank you for the active attention of all the participants, and the director of the resource center of PetrSU, Elena Yuryevna Guseva, for organizing remote meetings with the districts of Karelia.
We all – and the magazine “Sever”, and the university, and schoolchildren, teachers and adult readers – have become closer despite the distance. It’s great that the adults listened with interest to my children’s stories, and the guys listened to my poems with equal interest and answered questions. The interested dialogue was a success! The workshop of the word continues! In April – in the Muezersky district.
