Celebrating East African Writing!

I Imagine Poetry

Dear Poets,

Thank you for your overwhelming response to our July Poetry Call Out. We will now sort through your poetry, following which the judges will read through and well… judge. We will let you know of their decision as soon as possible.

In the meantime, the August challenge gets a little steeper. We will make a call out, but here’s a heads up.


The old pond;
A frog jumps in —

The sound of the water

– Matsuo Basho


or a Sonnet.

What is a sonnet?


The Storymoja Hay Festival is on the 19-22 September 2012. What are YOU expecting? Writing workshops, poetry workshops, talks, interviews, Ideagasms, poetry performances, theatre performances, live music, events for your kids… so much, for everyone! Keep an eye on the website for event highlights and ticketing information. 

In the meantime, what can you do with the Storymoja Hay Festival? Join the conversations! Attend an ideagasm! Tell a friend! Upload the image below  as your Facebook Cover Photo for a day or two (comment on our facebook page and tell us that you have uploaded the Facebook Cover Photo for a chance to be entered into a ticket draw for this week – July 29 – August 3rd)!
