The Jhohadli Summer Youth Writing Project – in their own words – Part 3

So, the deed is done; the Jhohadli Summer Youth Writing Project (August 12th to 16th 2013) has come and gone. I asked the participants (14 young people aged between 9 and 19) to evaluate and this is what they said.

Q. What was your favourite part of the JSYWP?

Kurne and Kadija by Joanne C Hillhouse (2)“My favourite part of the camp was the snacks, I’m kidding but I did enjoy them. Usinig visual prompts and going on the walks to get inspiration was definitely the best. Meeting new people was also great.”

“My favourite part of this camp was looking at the images and creating a story from them. Also listening to the various styles of writing in the other participants”

“Honestly…I enjoyed everything and it would be a bit difficult to decide….. loved all of it.”
