During the event ‘An Evening With Chimamanda‘, Chimamanda mentioned that her creative writing workshop will be relaunched later this year and we have the details for the application. The name of the creative writing workshop has been changed from The Farafina Trust Writing Workshop to The Purple Hibiscus Creative Writing Workshop. it will be sponsored by Trace Nigeria, and will run for 10 days, starting from the 20th of November, to the 30th.
It will give you an opportunity to learn about creative writing from Chimamanda and other insanely talented and brilliant writers. You will also get to meet other writers who are working towards building a career out of writing like yourself.
One fantastic thing about this Workshop is that feeding and accommodation will be provided for all accepted writers!
