FAQs

When do you have workshops?

The Bocas Lit Fest now offers writing workshops throughout the year, not only during the annual NGC Bocas Lit Fest. Our in-person workshops are held at The Writers Centre, 14 Alcazar Street, St. Clair, and our online workshops are facilitated via Zoom. To attend a workshop, you must book a ticket via our website and make advance payment. This page is updated whenever a new workshop opens for registration. 

Who can register for a workshop?

Anyone! We programme a range of workshops, from general “getting started” writing workshops to advanced masterclasses with one-on-one feedback. Each workshop blurb will include specific details so you can decide if it’s the right development opportunity for you. We listen to participant feedback received in our workshop evaluations to book future in-demand workshops. Please feel free to contact us to request a workshop!
