About Us

Writing is considered to be an art but it is also a skill to be nurtured and honed. Many people, young and old, find it daunting to write a short piece in a magazine or a newspaper leave alone attempting to publish an article in an academic journal or writing a book in any field of study or research.

TESTIMONIAL

Students Review

It provided a good start for me in writing. I feel like I learnt more about the thought that goes into a story while it's in the making.

About getting time to contemplate and put it down and to present before peers.
