UPWRITE!!! Creative Writing workshops

We all have a story to share. We all need an outlet for creative expression. We are all endowed with an ability to share our side of the STORY.

"UPWRITE" sessions are available for all age groups. Thousands of youngsters, adults and the elderly from around the world have participated in these workshops, despite their diverse cultural, national & religious origin or even varied terms of reference.

Many participants have been inspired to horn this craft as professionals or as a means for personal self expression and as subtle mechanism for confidence building.These sessions have enabled students at all educational levels to express themselves more effectively in their academic pursuits. Many schools have solicited support, input and advice for projects whereby students can create a body of work for publication or for concerts, readings, Book & Poetry Day celebrations.

These sessions are formally recognised by various literary and social bodies as instrumental for the ample propagation of Functional & Cultural literacy. Many elders have been able to record their achievements and fulfilled secretly harboured intentions to record extraordinary life's experiences.

"UPWRITE"sessions have been hosted by various educational, health, community, social and cultural organisations in the Caribbean, Europe and Africa.
