About the Workshop

The U.P. National Writers Workshop is the annual workshop of Likhaan: The U.P. Institute of Creative Writing (ICW).

Previously dedicated to helping up-and-coming writers, the UP National Writers Workshop has been reformatted to mentoring writers in mid-career. The workshop aims to help writers who have already published (or are on the verge of publishing) a book, or have won major literary awards, further hone their craft.
