RONGO UNIVERSITY WRITERS CLUB COLLABORATES WITH UNIVERSITY’S COMMUNICATION DEPARTMENT.
By ARNOLD ADIDI
Rongo university Writers Club has collaborated with the University’s Department of Communication in a bid to enhance quality content creation and students’ mentorship. During a joint meeting held on Friday 21st of January, this young robust club through its patron Ms. Maren Akong’o engaged the university’s website administrator Ms. Merab Shitemi, Librarian Mr. Joel Nakitare and Information scientist, Mr. Stephen Oloo in a move that will see members nurture their writing and production skills.
The collaboration will enable members of the Writers Club to work with the university in developing its proposed quarterly newsletter, cover and create content on key events within campus and have their content uploaded on the Varsity’s social media platforms with the help of Ms. Shitemi. Members will also get an opportunity to participate in virtual mentorship programs with senior content developers both inside and outside of the university.
The club will also benefit from a license to access free online newspapers courtesy of Mr. Nakitare, and Mr. Oloo will provide a page on the Information Science microsite dedicated to the club’s content. The club’s leadership has expressed gratitude for the assistance and pledged to do more to promote the University.
