Jhohadli Writing Project – Latest News

Why did you register for this workshop?
I was curious. I also thought I could learn new things which I did.

What was your favourite/least favourite activity?
I enjoyed everything at the workshop especially the discussions.

Would you recommend this workshop?
Yes, most definitely. There is a lot to learn and the facilitator did a great job of explaining what I didn’t understand.

BA & A – Writing and Public Speaking Workshops, JWP – Creative Writing Workshop Coming Up

Barbara Arrindell & Associates has offered toward the 2018 Wadadli Pen Challenge prize package a workshop entitled ‘Presenting: Telling Your Story Orally’ which will be gifted to the honourable mentions.

As for its wider community offerings, BA & A’s next set of courses come up in May. Given their support of Wadadli Pen, it seems fitting to share the registration information for their upcoming workshops. The first of the four week courses will be held in May and then in June registrants will get the opportunity to do the corresponding course and collect a certificate of completion. The goal is to empower participants to be competent communicators in the workplace.


Download the form to register:


Yes, I am one of the facilitators. This written communication course is different from my creative writing workshops as it emphasizes communication – purpose, strategies, and more as relates to the written word. Though creative writing is my passion, I do have a degree in Communications and have taught it, locally, at the college level at three different institutions.

For more on my Creative Writing workshop, see the flyer below (and contact the posted email address to register) – the winner of Wadadli Pen, incidentally, will be gifted a spot in this workshop.

April 2018

I have trained in fiction writing and editing, facilitated fiction/creative writing workshops, have edited for other writers, and, of course, write creatively – books, short stories which have been published in the Caribbean and beyond, won acclaim, been taught in educational institutions, and more. Plus, I am the founder and coordinator of Wadadli Pen. My goal is always to help participants access their best writing in a collaborative environment.

There’s still time to register for both.

Writing is Your Business Returns

A moment during cycle one level oneThis one is for folks based in Antigua. It’s an adult education class I first offered in 2016 for working people seeking to improve their facility with written communication in the workplace. This isn’t about learning to write like a pro, but learning to write with more confidence and communicate effectively.

This course was offered under the banner of Barbara Arrindell & Associates and will be again.


I try to create an environment where participants don’t feel intimidated by the process of writing. I operate from the premise that writing can be made accessible to everyone. This is especially so for people willing to invest in themselves and putting in the work. The 2016 course reviews suggest I succeeded – by which I mean the participants succeeded in meeting their goals.

“I think I have improved. I now look at my weak areas when writing.”

“I accomplished my goal of learning proper grammar usage and some proper sentence construction.”

“The overall training was good and I’ve learned how to structure my ideas.”

“Overall it was a productive course” … “It was worth the sacrifice.”

“I  am more aware of common mistakes.”

Convinced, yet?

Think about it.

Once you’ve made up your mind, see the flyer above for registration details.
