FUTURE WRiters Workshop
After the first exciting session, the team behind The Future Project is pleased to announce Season II of The Future Writers Workshop!
“The purpose of these trainings is to help talented young writers – whether they work in corporate organisations, are professional writers, freelance writers or just do it for fun – to improve their skills as writers,” Kenneth Oliko, the Communication Coordinator, said. “It is to help them improve your skill as a writer, move from raw talent to a polished stage and get practical tips on how to explore your writing talent. Last season, writers like Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Toni Kan and others were incredibly resourceful in engaging up to 40 young writers and we are glad that everyone is on board to do it again.”
