The fall/winter session of NKSC’s writing classes commenced on October 6th, 2015. NKSC is now entering its fifth year of providing writing training to young defectors in South Korea. The 2015 fall session consists of 8 workshops led by a professor from one of Seoul’s top universities. Each workshop focuses on a different topic ranging from essay structuring to analytical writing and choosing essay topics.
Most defectors who reach South Korea have not spent as much time in formal education as the average South Korean youth. This leaves defectors at a distinct disadvantage in academic settings and they often struggle at university with writing assignments. Our writing classes have helped several dozen defectors so far and we hope to help many more.
