Selected Writers for 2013 Farafina Trust Creative Writing Workshop

I am extremely honored to be counted among these amazing writers and to be learning under the tutelage of Chimamanda Adichie, Binyavanga Wainaina and our other esteemed teachers. These are the moments when you are affirmed in the work that you do and the choices that you make to pursue your craft. I won’t get to preaching here, will save it for another day. But I am feeling really blessed.

  1. Oh, but preaaach! This is so flipping exciting! 🙂 I’m ecstatic for you and I don’t even know you. LOL. I wish you safe travels, productive writing and much, much success on your journey.

    And I also wish you would pass on any other interesting workshops you know of 🙂 I just recently re-decided “So, I AM a writer!” and to do writerly things. Again, congrats!

    • Ohmigoodness! Darat! Thank you so much for your kind message! I appreciate your well-wishes and I am always wishing the same to my fellow writers of the world. There are so many peaks and valleys that it is always important to lift each other up– thank you for doing that! I will certainly keep you in mind for writerly things! Now that you are back on your writing-tip, my first recommendation is to subscribe to Poets&Writers. I have a slew of literary subscriptions, but that is by far the most important and relevant one for me and submissions. Best of luck to you!
