Development organizations face the challenge of documenting the results of their work. Funding organizations and other stakeholders demand significant results from development interventions. One of the many ways to showcase these results is through stories that describe how development projects have significantly affected peoples' lives. Unfortunately, many development professionals have difficulty capturing these results through writing and even if they do know how to write, many find it difficult to focus on the essential and meaningful aspects of their experiences. This 2-week course shall focus on non-fiction story telling and in organizing and facilitating a writeshop. The writeshop process, pioneered by IIRR, is a tool for learning and sharing important lessons from the field.

Course fee of $2,200 includes tuition fees, full board and accommodation on a twin sharing arrangement (single room accommodation can be requested for additional fee of $10 per day of stay), course-related local travel, materials, field and agency visits, and airport transfers.

Application forms can be downloaded from the IIRR website ( and sent by email. For further inquiries please contact:
