Workshop To Promote Arts

A 5-day writing workshop to be hosted by the Commonwealth Writers in collaboration with the Fiji National University and the University of the South Pacific  is an opportunity to promote literary arts.

At least that’s the view of FNU’s acting vice-chancellor, Professor Ian Rouse.

“This is a very exciting event because it deals with creative arts from the Commonwealth Foundation and the two Universities and we are working together to see what we can do to actually promote the written word,” Professor Rouse said. “My only hope is that young people who love the written word will get engaged in the process and what they can do to contribute more to the written word.”

Commonwealth writer Sunila Galappatti said that the workshop was created for those who were interested in writing in the Pacific.

“In terms of prose writing there was very little support for writers so we are trying to create a workshop for writers that are writing both fiction and non fiction in the Pacific Islands,” Ms Galappatti said. The writing workshop will be facilitated by acclaimed British writer, biographer and historian, Patrick French and  Ms Galappatti.

The workshop started yesterday and will end on March 1.
