Writivism is running a three-day creative writing workshop in Lagos, Gaborone, Kampala, Dar es Salaam and Johannesburg. The workshops will take place in January 2015 so make sure that your are available for these masterclasses, group critique sessions and individual writing time.

Successful flash fiction and short stories will also have a chance to be published in newspapers, online and be entered into the submission to the Writivism African Short Story Prize.

Participants will be mentored by published and award-winning writers such as Yewande Omotoso in Johannesburg, Dami Ajayi in Lagos, Donald Molosi in Gaborone, Zukiswa Wanner and Ayeta Anne Wangusa in Dar es Salaam, as well as our own author Dilman Dila in Kampala.
