On Tuesday 17th May, Sista held a writers workshop for aspiring young women writers at Alliance Francaise.
The workshop was led by accomplished author Rebecca Tobo Olul-Hossen who has just returned from being a guest at the Brisbane Writers Festival, and supported by the fabulous Sarah Freeman from GATE MINDS who shared insight on the role of language to create imagery as well as the power of persuasion.
As well as having Rebecca and Sarah as mentors, we also have the trial-blazer PNG native Amanda Donigi, the founder and editor of Stella Magazine, as a mentor. She is also the founder of Pacific Pencil, a publishing house and one of the brains behind the Black Salt.
We are honored to work with some of Vanuatu’s up and coming female writers, provide mentorship and assist to produce some amazing pieces of writing.
Stay tuned as these will be published and available for you to read soon!
This project is made possible with the support of the We Rise Coalition.
