Zen in December: Children’s yoga

Also so busy during this period? Take a rest! In the festive month of December, when children are often extra busy and there are many impressions to process, we try to create a time of rest. An hour where children can be themselves and be made aware of their bodies and thoughts.

Miriam Lucia: From writing competition to publication

Colleague and author Miriam Lucia explains what participation in writing competitions can lead to. Several short stories have been published in short story collections. At the end of October 2020, her winning thriller novel ‘David and Sara’ appeared in the 4-in-1 book ‘Black Snow’ at Godijn Publishing. In March 2022, she strengthened her name with ‘The Necklace’, from the writing competition themed ‘Fatal Encounter’. Later this year, she was allowed to sign another writing contract. Last September was followed by the launch of ‘The Body in the Library’. This feel-good detective is the first part of a series starring librarian Ilona Wachters.

Where and how does she prefer to write, and where does Miriam find her inspiration? Come and talk to her about her writing adventures. Maybe you want a (fictional) role in a next part?

Lecture infections: worth knowing about how viruses work
It is the season: a cough and a runny nose ‘were part of it’, but are rapidly exciting in the present time. Our health is important to us, how can we influence it ourselves? Because what is a virus and how does an infection work?
Lex van der Kooij, physiotherapist/teacher and member of the Voorschoten prevention agreement tells all about it during his lecture with a lot of information about how a virus works and what we ourselves can do to minimize the chance of a virus infecting us. .

Give or Give as a Gift: Comic Writing Workshop
Soon we will have a super cool workshop for all young people who love comics and for those who didn’t know it yet.
Esther Holtkamp has been an editor at Anders And Ugeblad for many years and tells how a comic is made in Anders And, and how you can make a comic too. For example, do you have to be really good at drawing to make a cartoon? (Answer: no!)
Of course, you also get to work on making your own cartoon. We are curious about the results!
