Workshop for Tulu writers to be conducted

Staff Correspondent

Stories and poems of budding writers to be published

UDUPI: The chairman of the Kannada Study Centre, Mangalore University, K. Chinappa Gowda, said on Saturday that young writers should have a knowledge of Tulu culture as this will help them in writing.

He was speaking after inaugurating a Tulu writing workshop organised by the Karnataka Tulu Sahitya Academy and the Tulu Koota at the Government First Grade Women's College here. Mr. Gowda said that budding writers should have good observation skills . Lack of patronage and institutional support is responsible for the slow growth of Tulu language and literature.

The academy should provide institutional support to budding writers. Tulu Koota president Bhaskarananda Kumar said that of the seven Jnanapitha award winners from Karnataka, three of them have connections with the Tulunadu region. Presiding over the function, president of the academy M.K. Sitaram Kulal said that the academy is holding several workshops to encourage writers. The academy will select the best poems and stories of these writers and publish them, he said. Gananath Yekkar, member of the academy, welcomed the gathering.
