Young Writers Association of The Gambia (YWAG) over the weekend, nominated new executive members to steer the affairs of the association for the next three years.

The association, founded on the 7th of January 2012, is led by Modou Lamin Age-Almusaf Sowe.

The association is directly responsible for governing and monitoring the programmes and affairs of young writers and serves as mediator and direct link between WAG and YWAG.
