The writing competition improved my imagination and it gave me ideas on how to let people know how writing can change the world.

2015- 2016 Young Writers Competition
The Young Writers Program holds a series of annual student writing workshops in K-12 schools across Qatar. The workshops are sponsored by the US Embassy Doha and led by local writing specialists. The focus of the workshops is to teach students writing and critical thinking skills in an engaging and interactive way. Using the writing prompts as the basis of the workshops, the specialists walk students through the standard stages of the writing process (pre-writing, composing, feedback and editing) in a fun and creative learning environment
