New Writing from Uganda
Sunday 1 July
11:15 – 12:15
With Nick Makoha, Maria Kakinda and Mahdu Krishnan.
This event showcases new perspectives on conflict and development, written by young people and collected in the Odokonyero short fiction anthology. Through a series of creative writing workshops, a mentorship programme, an anthology and teaching materials, the project seeks to empower young people from across the country to tell their own stories of what matters in Uganda today, sharing their experiences, observations, imaginations and vision of contemporary African life beyond the headlines and media soundbites.
