Five days state writers camp begins at Rajouri

J&K Academy of Art, Culture & Languages organised an All State Writers’ Camp here on Sunday. The camp, which is being held in collaboration with Himalayan Education Mission Rajouri, will buzz with literary discourses and writing and recitation of poetry and prose. About two dozen writers and poets representating different languages of the State are participating in the five day camp, which will concluded on June 3. Secretary, J&K Academy of Art, Culture & Languages, Dr Aziz Hajini, who attended the inaugural, said that the idea of a writers’ camp at Rajouri was aimed at providing participants an ideal environment for creative writing and inter-language discussion.
