The Writivism Festival is set to happen at Makerere University and the National Theatre in Kampala, Uganda from 16th to 22nd June 2015. It is part of the annual Writivism cycle that includes workshops, mentoring, publishing, a short story prize and a schools programme.
This year the festival will be hosting some pretty cool people if the tentative program is to be believed. Some of the folks who will be giving Uganda their awesomeness include Mukoma wa Ngugi, Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor, Mehul Gohil, Onyeka Nwelue, Shedrack Chikoti, Tsitsi Dangarembga, Karen Mukwasi and Timothy Kalyegira.
There will also be several book launches with A Nation In Labour by Harriet Anena already confirmed.
If you are in the Kampala vicinity I advice you not to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to meet in the flesh some of these great folks.
