Poštovani prijatelji,
kako smo uspešno završili zbornik TREPTAJ VREMENA, drago mi je da vas obavijestim da je novi konkurs počeo 22.10.2017.
Novi konkurs je napravljen za zbornik Plavi safir.
Na konkurs šaljete konkurs minimum dvije pjesme ili priče, a maksimum deset pjesama ili priča (tj. stranica).

Konkurs počinje 22.10. 2017 i zbog velikog interesovanja trajaće sve do 20.01.2018.

Pjesme koje šaljete moraju biti u word-u, kao i bez gramatičkih grešaka ukoliko je to moguće.
Jedna pjesma treba da je do 28 stihova, s tim da stihovi ne budu recimo dve kratke reči, jer tada stranica gubi izgled i vidnu ljepotu za čitaoce. A cilj nam je i ljepota i kvalitet lijepe reči.
Što se priča i proze tiče pravila ostaju ista kao iz prethodni konkurs, osim što će se kotizacija obračunavati po stranicama, priče mogu imati do 32 redova.

I pjesme i priče šaljete 
sa naznakom za konkurs Plavi safir. Uz svoja dela obavezno stavite vaš potpis koji želite da bude u knjizi.
Biće dodeljene pohvale za najbolje autore i njihova djela.
Naravno bićete u što kraćem roku obavešteni da li su vaši radovi prihvaćeni u zborniku. Nakon toga plaćate kotizaciju.  Za sve ostale informacije i pitanja obratite se na navedeni e-mail i sve ćemo vam razjasniti.

Dodala bih da ukoliko imate talentovanu djecu, i oni mogu učestvovati u zasebnom poglavlju uz vaše odobrenje. Da i mlađima damo priliku, jer na mlađima svijet ostaje. Mališani neće plaćati učešće, jer lično smatram da djeci treba dati priliku da pokažu svoj dar!

S poštovanjem Radica Matuški


Dear friends,
As we successfully completed the competition for our last collection TREPTAJ VREMENA , I am pleased to inform you that the new one started on October 22, 2017.
The new contest was made for the Blue Sapphire Collection.
For the contest you can submit a minimum of two poems or stories, and a maximum of ten poems or stories (i.e. pages).

The competition starts on October 22nd. 2017 and due to great interest it will continue until 20.01.2018.

The poems you send must be in Word format, as well as without grammatical errors, if possible.
One poem should have up to 28 verses, except with two short words, because then the page loses its appearance and visible beauty to the readers. And our goal is the beauty and quality of the beautiful word at the same time.
The story and prose rules remain the same as in the previous competition, except that the registration fee will be calculated per page, so the stories can have up to 32 rows.

You should send your poems and stories to: with an indication for the Blue Sapphire contest. 
With your works, make sure you also send your signature that you want to be in the book.
There will be a praise for the best authors and their works.
Of course you will be informed as soon as possible whether your papers are accepted. After that, you pay a fee. For all other information and questions, please contact the above e-mail and we will clarify everything.

I would also like to add that if you have talented children, they can participate in a separate chapter, with your approval. I belive it is important to give the younger people the opportunit. They will not pay the participation fee, because I personally think that children should be given the opportunity to show their gift!

Sincerely, Radica Matuski
Good luck!!!


Follow your dreams and always dream big


I know, I know it may sound tacky and washed out, but if you take it a little bit more seriously you will surely find your own personal dreams and never give up on them.

The reason I support such an idea is my belief that everything we do starts with dreaming about it, wishing it truly and passionately, and later on finding ways and small steps that can turn our dreams into plans. Sometimes it would seem your dreams are far away or unrealistic. Sometimes people around you such as family and friends will consider them pretentious or silly. Sometimes you will feel you cannot do it. However, always remember that bad days do not last long and that there are always obstacles you need to solve to fulfill every little task that comes your way.

Keeping up your motivation and desire to achieve no matter what is something that will provide you comfort and support in the days of self-doubt or when everything you do goes wrong or sloppy. It is important not to let anything distract you and influence your decisions if bad times appear. Good days are those that count and during such optimistic times, you should consider what to do next.  As I said earlier, thanks to motivation and dreaming big, it gets easier to turn your ideas into concrete plans.

Quite some time ago, I learned this lesson the easy way – from my grandfathers’ advice. Not so long ago I learned it the hard way – from my own experience. Yes, you guessed, this is a story about a little girl who had hopes and dreams. Yes, this is a story about a girl whom everyone laughed at. Yes, this is a story about a little girl who failed a million times to make one final success. This is a story about a little girl who grew up never forgetting her promise to believe in the impossible and fulfill her dreams of writing and publishing. She became a woman who spent eight years working on and investing in her life, education, knowledge, and confidence. A woman who fought hard to pursue her scientific research, and published it as an independent book. A woman who never stopped being inspired to write romantic love poems for others to read. A woman who sits at home right now and writes her first novel. A woman who never gives up.

All in all, it does not really matter if you dream about a new pair of sneakers that you can’t afford without your parents’ help, or finally passing that exam you were too lazy to learn properly, or starting a new business. No. We all have specific individual needs, dreams, ideas, illusions and our own ways of fulfilling them. However, if we do not follow them enthusiastically we can never create a concrete plan and start solving one step at a time in order to achieve what we want.

So, if you need a new dress, or sneakers, or that expensive fancy bag you saw in the shop window, then enter that shop and ask if they need help or a part time worker. Ask for an opportunity, earn that money and get yourself something you want. And if that silly exam keeps bothering you and all your friends tease you, stay at home a couple of nights and really start studying! You have no idea where to start? Ask a friend, read forums, call people who do similar things, look for advice wherever you can think of. Maybe you will not become the next James Bond or Steve Jobs, but the point is you do want to become them – you want to become you, what and who you dream about being and doing. And trust me, dreams come true only if you believe in them and fight for them.
