The African Women’s Development Fund and Femrite (Uganda Women Writers Association) have organised a 10-day writing workshop dubbed the Writing for Social Change Workshop 2015.

The workshop to be facilitated by veteran BBC journalist and media expert Elizabeth Ohene from Ghana and award-winning writer Yewande Omotoso, from Nigeria/South Africa/Barbados will help you step-up your involvement in highlighting issues around women’s rights and social justice. You will read widely (we know you love reading) from assigned selected texts, and complete daily writing exercises. After the workshop, you are expected to use the knowledge acquired to write widely about social justice issues in and beyond their communities.
