Celebrating East African Writing!
Do you want to get published? Of course you do.
Storymoja is pleased to invite you to an informational session with a UK editor who is compiling an anthology of Kenyan short stories. Dr. Emma Dawson of CCC Press has edited Cameroon and Nigerian anthologies in the series so far. She is now working on the Kenyan and Ugandan ones, and is planning to have them published by the end of the year. See the publisher’s website for more details.
As part of the compilation process, Dr. Dawson travels to the country in question to meet with potential contributors and listen to what they have to say about their writing. At the session, she gives a brief overview of the Press and the idea behind the anthology series. Don’t miss this chance to meet her and find out more.
WHEN: Thursday 23rd April, 5-7pm
WHERE: Storymoja Offices, Spring Valley, Nairobi
