Although Chinthaka is no more working for, he is still very much involved in organizing various writing projects on behalf of the platform on a voluntary basis.

Since 2017 he has organized 5 writing projects (which he fondly calls as WRIPES) and currently he is in the middle of his 6th WRIPE or WRIPE-6, which focuses on World Asteroid Day 2020.

WRIPES are a unique type of writing projects. WRIPES help aspiring writers from around the world to publish mini e-books based on UN recognized International Days like World Asteroid Day, get popular and become authors in a very short period of time!


Let us explain how it happens:

If we take World Asteroid Day 2020, it is celebrated each year on 30th June. Six months in advance, Chinthaka personally invites aspiring writers he has identified in to submit their draft stories that are written focusing on World Asteroid Day, through Google Drive.

Once he receives a story, he carefully edits it and informs the writer to publish it in Once it is published, Chinthaka designs a beautiful and attractive book cover for the book and sends it to the writer to adorn the book he had written.











Then, everything in place, Chinthaka starts to promote the book within the Sweek community!

Since he has about 500 followers in Sweek alone, the books he promotes become popular easily!

Chinthaka’s Writing Project on World Asteroid Day in 2018 (WRIPE-4) came to be recognized by the International Space Magazine ‘Astronomy’ and he was invited to publish a guest blog post on his work! Here it is!

Chinthaka also hosts a Youtube Channel on WRIPES! They are one of a kind!

For the best performers, he also provides author interviews! 

His current writing project, WRIPE-6 is now registered in the United Nations’ Official website on Asteroid Day. Take a look!

Okay, now here’s your chance kids! Deadline for new entries to WRIPE-6 has just passed.
