The AUN Writing Center sponsored a writing workshop on Saturday, October 14, 2022, for the academic and non-academic staff of Jokem Ultimate Academy, Yola. The training took place in the 24-hour section of the e-Library.

In her opening remarks, Mrs. Emilienne Idorenyin Akpan, the workshop leader and director of the writing center, reassured the attendees that the training will be beneficial.

The Writing Center’s Curriculum Literary Advisor, Mrs. Ogechi Dan-Okereke, kicked things off by outlining the phases involved in the writing process. She guided the audience through the steps needed in language creation to convey impact and meaning while maintaining flow.

Her advice is that you should first identify your audience and state your purpose before starting to write. You can utilize language that the reader understands because you are aware of your audience.

Curriculum Literary Advisor, Mr. Moses Achinihu, also involved participants in the pre-writing and follow-up stages. He went on to say that proper writing requires outline and idea generation. Write down thoughts as they occur to you, paying little attention to how they sound. Treat your paper or first draft in the same way that a little child would treat a coloring book.

The JUA school administrator, Mr. Paul Ksji, gave the closing remarks. He emphasized the need for parents to understand their children, adding that the task of raising a child shouldn’t be put only in the hands of the instructors. He expressed gratitude to the AUN Writing Center for facilitating the training for his school. “In order to improve the teaching and learning conditions for every kid, we hope to work with the AUN Writing Center more frequently”, he said.
