DADA books will be facilitating a creative writing / reading workshop in partnership with Farafina Books and Children And The Environment CATE and with support from The Committee For Relevant Art (CORA) and NewsCafe.

Planned for Friday the 22nd of October, the workshop will begin at 9.00am with a creative writing class for school children (Age range: 8-12 years) facilitated by Ayodele Arigbabu, Publisher of DADA books.

The creative writing class will touch on elements of characterization, points of view, plotting and other facets of the creative writing process.

A reading session would be subsequently co-ordinated by Sola Alamutu, author of CATE Saves The Ikopi Rainforest, drawing from her book and from The Land of Kalamandahoo a childrens’ adventure story by Ruby Igwe, to illustrate points touched on during the creative writing class.
