Celebrating East African Writing!
We’ve decided to change things up for the month of July. So we are taking a break from the photo dramas and asking you to send in your poetry.
Theme: “I imagine my world…” – Your poetry does not have to include those words. Be free, be creative, enjoy your work 🙂
Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org and subject the email with I Imagine Poetry
When is the deadline? July 26th, 2013
What will the winning poem get? 2 Season tickets(entry to all four days to the Storymoja Hay Festival) and a Storymoja Book.
Why are we imagining the world? The Storymoja Hay Festival is on September 19 – 22, 2013. The Festival is a yearly celebration of ideas. It encompasses events and conversations around the arts, literature, culture, education, technology, environment, and society as a whole. This year, the theme of the Festival is Imagine the World/Waza Dunia.
