This workshop, with the theme Pilihan Raya dan Perubahan or Elections and Change, will focus on stimulating discussions and ideas about what young people (aged 18-35) can do to be heard and to effect changes in the coming general election.
Workshop participants will spend the first day learning about the topic and picking up writing tips and techniques including how to draw in readers and get their ideas across clearly and creatively.
Participants will spend the second day writing while facilitators will be on hand to guide them. The first drafts will then be presented to the other workshop participants for their views, before they are further amended.
An experienced writer will also review the drafts and provide constructive ideas on how they can be improved. Polished versions will then be published on the Aliran website, subject to editorial clearance.
Have a look at the work of the young writers from our previous workshops.
