Every year, we are inundated with glowing reports from participants in the creative writing workshop convened by Farafina Trust and funded by Nigerian Breweries.
The workshop is one of the many writing initiatives that celebrate African writing by seeking to “improve the craft.” According to the conveners of the workshop, the idea is to “encourage published and unpublished writers by bringing different perspectives to the art of storytelling.”
The 2015 edition of the workshop took place in June, from the 16th to the 25th. Twenty-five participants assembled in Lagos for a 10-day retreat, during which they participated in writing classes taught by Chimamanda Adichie, alongside Binyavanga Wainaina and Aslak Sira Myhre, a Norwegian librarian.
From the reports we’ve received, [read HERE] this year’s workshop was both productive and inspiring. You learn a lot about your self and your writing, but you also get to meet a lot of really cool people.
Here are the photos to prove it!
