It's that time again, writing people! The 2013 Farafina Trust Creative Writing workshop is now open to applicants. The workshop is taught by Orange and Commonwealth Prize winning author, Chimamanda Adichie, Caine Prize winning author, Binyavanga Wainaina, and others.

To apply, send a sample of your writing (fiction or non-fiction) to udonandu2013@gmail.com with the email subject 'Workshop Application'. The body of your email should contain:

1. Your name
2. Your address
3. A few sentences about yourself
4. A writing sample of 200 to 800 words

Need convincing? I participated in the 2011 workshop, and here are nine reasons you might want to give it a go.

    1. Pele. There are people, though, who attend from the states. The challenge would be finding the time, I guess.
