Creative writing is an excellent form of expression. But it takes careful nurturing of talent. It takes dedication. And it takes bravery to allow others to read what you’ve wrote.
And that is why we have launched out Young Writer Competition back in 2017.
Our plans are to create a Young Writer Symposium where we will reward the participating writers, but also where we will be able to offer some professional advice. Children from across Kenya will meet experts from fields such as fiction and non-fiction writing; journalism; publishing; television and radio; music and film industry and more.
We are continuing to work with our young writers and will soon publish their very own work in ‘Our Growing Book of Stories’. So watch this space.
