Kwani Trust Announces Fiction Workshop Writers


Kwani Trust Announces Fiction Workshop Writers


Following Kwani?'s pursuit of developing new contemporary fiction, the workshop will incubate writing from thirteen emerging voices with particular focus on writers between the ages of 18 and 24 and writers from outside of Nairobi’s urban space. 

We hope that the writers invited to the workshop will work with power and mtaa as broad thematic concerns. The ten day workshop, and the intensity of the residential format, will allow the writers enough time to produce substantial work, learn aspects of the writer's craft and develop style. The invited writers will also form a meaningful working relationship with the other writers on the programme.

At the end of the workshop we will ask writers to submit drafts suitable for submission to Kwani? 09, the ninth issue of Kwani Trust’s flagship literary journal subtitled Your Count®y Needs You.
