So you think you can write

Καλώς ήλθατε στον ιστότοπο του σχολείου μας όπου φιλοξενούνται διηγήματα των μαθητών μας τα οποία γράφτηκαν στο πλαίσιο του μαθήματος των Αγγλικών. Όπως θα δείτε, η σχολική καθημερινότητα κάποιες φορές αφήνει μικρές ρωγμές από τις οποίες ξεπηδούν ιστορίες που, αν και σύντομες, έχουν πολλά να πουν... Θα ήθελα να ευχαριστήσω θερμά, λοιπόν, τους μαθητές του 9ου Γενικού Λυκείου Καρδαμιτσίων Ιωαννίνων που γενναιόδωρα διέθεσαν τον χρόνο, τη φαντασία και τη δημιουργικότητά τους για να μας διηγηθούν τις δικές τους όμορφες, παράξενες και ενδιαφέρουσες ιστορίες γραμμένες στην Αγγλική γλώσσα.

Sometimes mundane classroom reality leaves rifts which allow for short stories to emerge and reveal ideas, thoughts, emotions ... Sincere and heartfelt thanks are due to the students of the 9th Senior High School of Ioannina, Greece, for generously devoting their time, imagination and creativity in order to narrate to us their own beautiful, strange and interesting short stories written in English.

What Writers Say About Writing

"If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."

--Toni Morrison

"Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly."

--Franz Kafka

"A word after a word after a word is power."

--Margaret Atwood

"You should write because you love the shape of stories and sentences and the creation of different words on a page. Writing comes from reading, and reading is the finest teacher of how to write."

--Annie Proulx

"A blank piece of paper is God's way of telling us how hard it is to be God."

--Sidney Sheldon

"If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster."
