Thank you for the overwhelming response to our November workshops!

We’re pleased to report that all of the NGC Bocas South + Central writing workshops held on Sunday 17 November 2013 were sold out. Thank you to all of you dedicated writers who turned out for these workshops. We’re looking forward to our next workshop series during the 2014 NGC Bocas Lit Fest, 23-27 April 2014.

For those who couldn’t make it to the workshops, we’ll leave you with these words of advice from Professor Funso Aiyejina, writer and facilitator of our “How to write a story” fiction workshop: “The better writer you want to be, the more you have to listen to people. Listen to tones, context and what is happening around you. The most important tool a writer has is language.”
