The age when you learn to decipher your emotions. The age when you begin to understand the why of things. The age of daring to venture outside the family cocoon and discover the world. For the seventh edition of the Les Zinspirés writing competition, five young authors find their voice to challenge, surprise and amaze us. Pen and paper in hand, they convey the concerns and questions, the dreams and hopes of their generation. Having polished their tales with the help of professional authors, over the course of the evening, they share their take on reality. (
