A story-crafting workshop organised for writers by Papua New Guinea’s Crocodile Prize Association last weekend was a huge success.
Over 30 people attended the workshop in Port Moresby with participants ranging in age from 13 to 65 and consisting of writers, readers, enthusiasts and Crocodile Prize fans.
They were hungry to learn, there was enthusiasm and passion, and many people raised insightful questions.
There was also great energy for the future of the Crocodile Prize and the competition itself.
The winners of this year’s Prize are to be announced soon when the judging process is complete.
The presenters at the workshop included University of Papua New Guinea lecturers Russell Soaba (pictured), Dr Anna Joskin and McPolly Koima.
The Crocodile Prize committee is looking for sponsors for 2017 and also skilled Papua New Guineans to assist with running the Association.
The association is entirely run by volunteers, so if you think you have useful skills please email me here.
