Mona Thijs (1999, BE) is studying a Master in Word Art at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. Since childhood she has looked at the days as if they were little stories. Those stories sometimes find their form on paper, sometimes on stage, sometimes in audio. Mona published columns in dS Magazine and Klasse. Some of her short stories appeared in the literary magazine DW B. In the fall of 2021, as part of her master’s degree, she did an internship at theaterwerkplaats HETGEVOLG, where she co-directed and worked with people who fall outside the regular social circuit.
