Free Creative Writing Workshop for Young Writers

In a bid to fulfill one of our aims and objectives which is stipulated in the Society’s constitution (organizing literary and creative writing workshops and conferences for the development of our members). The Society of Young Nigerian Writers is organizing a free creative writing workshop for upcoming and aspiring Young Nigerian Writers.

The creative writing workshop, which promises to be an avenue for grooming and enhancing the skills and literary techniques of upcoming and aspiring writers in the country will also allow young and talented Nigerian writers between the ages of 7 and 35 to get their works published as some notable independent publishers will be on the ground to access and collect unpublished manuscripts for publication after the agreement between the publishers and the writers.
As there are many talented and upcoming writers in the country who are eager to write and waiting to get their works published; some have never written any works due to their inability and lack of technical know-how. An enabling ground should be created for upcoming and aspiring writers to sharpen and hone their literary skills and creativity which is the gap the society is filling.

Expected Guest lecturers at the workshop include: Dr. Remi Adedokun, former H.O.D, Theatre Arts Department, University of Ibadan who will be talking on – Writing an award winning children drama. Mr. Freeman Okosun, the National President of Biographers’ Collectives will be talking on the Fundamentals of book publishing and marketing and the present Vice-Chairman of the Association of Nigerian Authors, Oyo State Chapter, Mr. Akeem Ajibade will be talking on 'Writing, a world acclaimed Children Poetry anthology and short stories'.
