Since 2016, we have run an English-language writing contest for children in Prague called Let's Write.  Every year, we find a different focus.  In 2019 we partnered with the Vaclav Havel Library and ran a contest inspired by Havel's work.  Most recently we ran a playwriting contest and produced the winning plays with directors and actors from Story Theatre and Prague Youth Theatre.  In 2021/2022 we are very pleased to be partnering with Radio Prague International for our first Podcast Contest!

This year, the annual Let's Write Contest is excited to announce that we are partnering with Czech Radio, and the winning stories will be professionally recorded for a podcast that will be broadcast on the radio.


We want you to write stories about the past that come from your own families - stories of unknown, ordinary people whose lives were affected by the history of Central Europe.  

The winners will  be involved in making the recordings, getting the chance to work with professionals in the Czech Radio professional studios!



As the main prize, the winning pieces in each age category will be recorded and broadcast on Radio Prague International with David Vaughan, the former editor-in-chief of the International. Section of Radio Prague International. 


The winners will be involved in the recording process and will get to workwtih David in the studio.
