Kampala Workshop

July 11th-14th

From 11 to 14 July we held our #Writivismat5 Special Creative Writing Workshop at Innovation Village in Kampala. Facilitated by award-winning poet and playwright Nick Makoha, we spent four days workshopping stories, debates elements of craft, and the political commitment of the contemporary writer. Nick drove the workshoppers to the heart of what it means to be a writer, using critical readings (including of his own word!), peer-critique and flash writing exercises to develop his students’ understanding of the art of economy and the short story form.
