The Language and Literature Bureau (DBP), through its Literature and Magazine Division, organised a poetry writing workshop as part of the Young Writers Programme 2020 in a bid to nurture young literary talents.

The three-day workshop opened yesterday at the DBP premises in Old Airport, Berakas.

Some 46 youngsters are attending the workshop, led by DBP Senior Language Officer Dr Haji Mohd Ali bin Haji Radin to provide the participants with basic poetry writing skills as well as an understanding of the creative writing process.

It is hoped that the workshop will inspire the youth to continue the literary tradition of the country by producing literary works of notable quality.

The Young Writers Programme is one of the annual projects fronted by the DBP with an aim of honing the skills of aspiring young writers.
