Workshop for African creative writers [Africa]

Posted on Nov 24, 2021 in Journalism Basics

Emerging African creative writers can participate in a free writers’ workshop.

The Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS) is accepting applications for its inaugural JIAS Writers’ Workshop.  The workshop will be a writing-intensive, four-week program for early-career writers who have a current work in progress that they would like to complete or polish.

Each writer will focus on his/her individual work as well as read others’ work and provide feedback. Writers will greatly benefit from the supportive structure that a writers’ workshop creates.

Workshop participants will be mentored by accomplished, critically-acclaimed and award-winning writers.

The workshop will be held June 2 to June 29, 2022.

The application deadline is Feb. 1, 2022.
