This workshop dwelled on the importance of childhood memories and cultural traits in creating a poetic voice. The poets looked at their national and official languages to write down memories of their kitchen experiences. All poets present explored their kitchen experiences with their parents back in the village and use their languages to express these experiences in poetic form. There was a total of 10 participants.
The write & sip workshop integrated the writer-2-writer mentorship programme of the association coordinate called Writers Space Africa-Cameroon. So in collaboration with this association the poets were able to successfully organise this workshop.
