*** THIS SESSION IS BY INVITATION. FOR SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN ONLY ***
This will be a creative writing workshop aimed at children. We are specifically looking to address the lack of African authors and stories out there and accessibility to those stories.
Sharing our unique stories and seeing others who look like us in the media fosters a sense of belonging and connection that’s vital for us to feel included, appreciated and validated.
Right now we are looking at an African creative renaissance and it is important that we do not leave the children, our future, out of the movement. By sharing with them the skills and techniques of creative writing, we give birth to more thought narrative in this direction. We are empowering the next generation to dream about possibilities they may not have entertained or felt entitled to.
To grow this industry, we need more people with the skills. Let's lay the strong foundation now. It is time.
This session is hosted by TEEOF Media / Simone's Oasis
