The much anticipated creative writers’ workshop hosted by two renowned Sotho authors, Tsietsi Mohapi and Letshase Nakeli, will be held at the hall of the Leseding Technical School on Saturday, 22 April, from 09:00.
The workshop is for both budding and established writers. Four literature genres will be dealt with.
“Preparations are underway and limited space is available.
“Only those who have booked their space will be accommodated. Attendees are expected to bring their manuscripts along, which will be read in their respective groups.
“All the discussions at the workshop will be published in the journal Hlokwana la Tsela, which will be sent to all the attendees. That way, they will benefit from the presentations, regardless of which group they participated in,” said Nakeli, who will facilitate the presentations on essays and drama.
Award winning author Mohapi will facilitate the novel and short story presentations.
Prizes will be awarded for well-written manuscripts in the various genres. A special award for excellence will also be presented for a book that has been published in Sotho.
