Hello AWT. I think you are doing great work to empower writers. I am based in Zimbabwe and love writing so much. I have published several short stories in anthologies and look forward to publishing a book this year. I long for space to write as well as opportunity to learn from other writers world over. If there is room to attend I would love to attend and learn from other writers.
