Feedback from participants
My third year went by as being a member of the Eurasian Creative Guild, and this greatly expanded my life as an author and a traveler, and I always get my inspiration by travelling. Having twice become a finalist in various categories of the competition (“Literary ranslation” and “Short Prose”), I attended the presentation of awards in London in 2016 and at the end of November 2018, at the 7th Festival in Bangkok. And even though this time I couldn’t be in the top three winners, I got a diploma for reaching the final, which was very nice. It was even more pleasant experience for me because of new moments and new friends.
I will never forget the performance at the Russian School “Diplomat” and the faces of children who listened carefully to my stories from the collection “Little Dreamers” and “Curious Things” and the presentation by Svetlana Krivoshlykova of her book. And also the girl who hugged me after the meeting, she said that she really liked my poems. It stroked me because I haven’t written poems for a long time, but the fact that the child heard poetry in my prose is incredibly important for me.
Half an hour after this small but big event for me personally, I wrote a story, and after all, the muse did not visit me for a long time, I was forgotten in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It is the same with the Guild — even if this organization is still small, like this girl, but we are at the beginning of a long journey, and there are many new meetings and new journeys ahead that will invariably give inspiration to their participants.

Being a member of the Eurasian Creative Guild I was selected to be the member of the Advisory Council. I am sincerely grateful to the Guilds and the organizers of the Festival for giving me the opportunity to participate in such a representative forum. I learned a lot in terms creativity and personal development.
I was very impressed by the scale of the Guild’s activities, which brought together such a diverse creative world. The many very interesting events of the Festival gave me new ideas, and above all, new friends, I hope that communication with them will continue.
I want to thank Anna Lari for helping me get comfortable in London by meeting Angelika at the airport, she brought in to our meetings her positive energy and attitude.
Hello to everyone from cold and frosty Moscow.
Always Yours, Nadezhda Kolyshkina.
I have only good memories of the contest. Indeed, thanks to this competition, in 2014 I was recognized as the winner. A year later, my story was published in London and presented there. In 2016, it was presented in Bishkek. This is a great success, which everyone who deals with a pen dreams of.
During my visit to Almaty (2014), I found new friends and writers with whom I still correspond.
Participation in the competition gave me the opportunity to change my outlook on the creative process. Later I wrote and prepared a collection of short stories for release. I also want to continue a series of detective stories. I really want to visit the festival every year to participate in the events that you conduct, it is a pity that there is no such opportunity. If the competition is ever to be held in the CIS, I will definitely take part.
«This is the time for reflection, as our busy lives have stopped for a while. It might have able us to get more creativity and more inspiration around some of our goals and projects that we wanted to bring on stream (to launch) in the past but never quite found the time. And therefore I strongly encourage you to find the time now to build on your creativity and to produce what are you passionate in so we will be able to discover the next talent from Eurasia.» — Nick Rowan

«But the most important — I found many friends» — Mikhail Ananov.
«And what does all this give me? It gives me happiness! Because there is a competition, there is movement, there is a sense, there is a feeling of happiness while making new friends, meeting new people. And right after the contest is over I think: what should I write next to send to the next competition in 2021? » — Inana
«The competition is wonderful, you need to participate in it in order to encourage people to write and win!» — Nadezhda Serebrennikova
