Mela darba faqqgħet pandemija, u … Xpatapumm!
Tfaqqa’ pandemija. Żewġt iħbieb antiki, ejja nsemmuhom Clare u Chris, jibdew jibagħtu messaġġi lil xulxin fuq WhatsApp b’suġġerimenti ta’ kotba x’jaqraw, sensiliet x’jaraw fuq Netflix, eċċ. Minħabba li t-tnejn dejjem qishom imġienen, għaddejjin minn ħaġa għall-oħra, flok messaġġi text jirrekordjawhom messaġġi awdjo. Chris jidħol fid-drawwa li jisma’ l-messaġġi awdjo ta’ Clare fi triqtu lura d-dar [...]
Halloween mimli mostri!
Ġa t-toroq qed jimtlew b’qargħa ħamra, xemgħat, ħajt tal-brimb u fatati … u dak ifisser biss ħaġa waħda: li qed toqrob Halloween. Min jaf għaliex festa “tal-biża’” tagħtina tant gost - probabbli għall-istess raġuni li nħobbu naraw il-films tal-orrur jew naqraw xi storja tal-biża’. Speċjalment mat-tfal, il-faxxinu tal-biża’ hu xi ħaġa primordjali. Imma naturalment mat-tfal [...]
Teodor Reljić was born in Belgrade but raised in Malta. He is a writer of fiction, a freelance feature writer, and former culture editor and film critic at MaltaToday. His debut novel, Two, was published by Merlin in 2014. As a screenwriter, he has adapted Clare Azzopardi’s short story “Camilla” and Alex Vella Gera’s novel Is-Sriep Reġgħu Saru Velenużi. Mibdul is his comic book debut.
Mark Vella wrote the book X'Seta' Ġralu lil Kevin Cacciattolo? so that he could call himself an author. But the fact that he has not written anything else after that, is making him doubt he can still hang on to the title. In his defence, he has written some sporadic pieces – among them two short stories published in Leħen il-Malti and a commissioned short story (obviously, handed in on the eve of the deadline) for Awguri, Giovanni Bonello. He has (also sporadic) academic aspirations and he has edited the Ġrajja Maltija anthology – a collection of short stories by Juann Mamo.
Emma Mattei is a writer and short film programmer. She is a founding member of Kinemastik NGO, founder of Uncommon guide books and has produced a number of short films. She currently resides in London, where she programmes for Future Shorts.
