The Daystar Creatives Academy series is one of the most innovative things to come out of the country in recent times. It allows for younger aspiring writers to learn from the people who have been in the game longer and should (theortically) know much better.
This Saturday is no different as Nganga Mbugua, Kap Kirwok and Ken Walibora make their appearance at the Daystar University campus on Valley Road.
Nganga Mbugua is one of the more well known fellows in Kenya’s literature business. By day he is an associate editor at the Nation Media Group. He is also a publisher with his Big Books and the author of several titles including This Land is Our Land, Terrorists of the Aberdare and Different colours. For his efforts he won the Wahome Mutahi’s Literary prize for Terrorists (In 2010) and Different Colours in 2012. The lucky hardworking bugger.
Arusha based Kap Kirwok is the author of Heartbeats of the mind, Silent dialogues and other’s. The columnist with the star won one of the Jomo Kenyatta Literature Awards 2013 for his book I blame the Sky.
Ken Walibora is the writer of the Swahili novel Siku Njema.
The three writers will teach you how to have great ideas and develop them into a story. You will also get a chance to interact with other writers.
