The British Council has announced that it is partnering with African Storybook Initiative to host a workshop aimed at promoting writing in indigenous languages.
A statement released on its website stated thus:
The British Council in collaboration with the African Storybook Initiative invites writers and illustrators to participate in a residential workshop for the production of mother-tongue based multilingual storybooks. The workshop is a component of the broader Story Making West Africa project which aims to promote the arts, education and mother-tongue-based multilingual education in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Writers and illustrators are therefore encouraged to seize this amazing opportunity and attend a 5-day residential workshop that will include other participants from Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Ghana.
It will be facilitated by trainers from the African Storybook initiative and will be fully funded by the British Council inclusive of travel, accommodation and a little stipend.
Interested people can apply here immediately as the deadline is midnight, 21 February 2018.
As usual, you can thank me later.
