    Farafina Trust Creative Writing Workshop 2017 Will Not Hold

    For those who have wondered if the the 2017 Farafina Creative Writing Workshop would still hold, it has been announced that the workshop has been called off for this year for obvious reasons.   

    Renowned author and director of the workshop, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie had earlier announced that the workshop will not hold due to the abrupt withdrawal of its sponsorship by the Nigeria Breweries (NB) Plc in a bid to streamline their expenditure. "Our sponsor, Nigeria Breweries Plc abruptly withdrew their sponsorship due to a need to streamline their expenditure," she said.

    The workshop which was officially opened in 2008 and held yearly in Lagos, Nigeria, would have entered its 10th year making it a decade of its existence and has featured many young Africans who have interest in literary works. Noting that the Nigeria Breweries has had half-a-decade relationship with Farafina Trust, she went on to say, "I thank them for encouraging the development of literary talent in Nigeria and Africa."
