1) Write your story. It can be anywhere from 500 to 1500 words. It can be about anything as long as it depicts the world of manners, decorum, customs and protocolsand the often bizarre and funny head on culture/personality clashes that we at times run into observing or tip-toeing around them. We are looking for humor, satire and chiefly, profundity. It might be a personal experience or even something you observed on the news. You could tell us about a work experience. A fashion police moment. It could be a comparative study of novels, cultures or traditions. It could be your mother. You're the boss. Call the shots. Win the book...
As always with HELVETICA BOLD, you don't need to be Swiss or of Swiss descent to participate. All you need is an interest in Switzerland and Swiss culture.
