Aliran Young Writers’ Workshop

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 5:01 am

Young Writers’ Workshop


Here’s an exciting workshop for youths who would like to explore the power of the written word especially in the light of the coming general election.

How will this election affect young people? Is there any way for them to articulate their concerns and aspirations, their hope for a better world?

What better way for youths to make their voices heard than by writing for a wider audience. We will guide you along this path.

Workshop participants will spend the first day of the two-day workshop learning about the topic and reflecting on their aspirations. We will share writing tips and techniques including how to draw in readers and get ideas across clearly and creatively.

Participants will spend the second day writing their drafts while facilitators will be on hand to guide them. The first drafts will then be presented to the other workshop participants for their views, before they are fine-tuned.

An experienced writer will also review the drafts and provide constructive ideas on how they can be improved. Polished versions will then be published on the Aliran website, subject to editorial clearance.

Voila! You could be a published writer before you know it. Here, have a look at the creative work of the young writers from our previous workshops.
