The Géwël Tradition Writer’s Workshop

January 10, 2011

One portion of the Géwël Tradition Project has been the development of a Writer’s Workshop to work with some of the younger géwëls. The goal of the workshop is to provide young géwëls the opportunity to write about the Géwël Tradition. This provides an opportunity for a presentation of the géwël tradition with the particular insights and understandings of those who have inherited and thus grown up in this tradition. In addition to their viewpoints, the essays are in their own voices.

The first piece from the Géwël Tradition Project Writer’s Workshop will be the next entry published. The article is about the Simb, or false lion event in Senegal, written by Mouhamad Faye who is a student at the University of Chiekh Anta Diop in Dakar, Senegal where he is studying Literature and Theater.

Stay tuned.
