Update on the Weekend

Hello Everyone,

The pat weekend was great for poetry and writing in Ghana and of course, your only literary running on radio was live again on Radio Univers 105.7 fm. We will be back on air again come Sunday at 5 p.m. so do not miss it. You ca also send us your poems via e-mail to But meanwhile, here is some update on the poetry workshop by the Writers' Project of Ghana.

The Writers' Project of Ghana, over the weekend, rolled out yet another of its series of workshops for writers in Ghana--this time dubbed 'A Day and Half Poetry Marathon.' Last weekend's edition is the third of its kind this year and focused on writing freely without any inhibitions as far as poetry is concerned.

The workshop saw to many participants producing materials instantly at the workshop on the first day. The second day focused, however, on peer critiquing of one work produced by each participants with Dr. Mawuli Adzei, a writer and lecturer at the University of Ghana English Department, steering affairs.
The project aims to improve the skills of writers, beginners, amateurs and 'already-made' writers.
