Writing Workshop by Sevda Khatamian

On Friday the 23rd of March our current artist in residency, Sevda Kahatamian, constructed a writing workshop for the 12th grade English students of the high school in Arganil. Khatamian told the students about her upbringing in Tehran, Iran and what it was like to move to Ankara, Turkey and how to use her experiences in her writing. Additionally, she taught the attentive students different writing techniques, how to build a character and how to tell a story. The students were also offered a writing exercise in letter writing, which Khatamian herself practices often.
