Calling out: ‘Reading Stages’ workshop
Goethe-Institute in association with Kwani Trust will run a two-day workshop
intended to provide young creative writers and writing enthusiasts
interested in establishing and running reading stages in Nairobi and around
the country with the tools to do so. The workshop will be held on June 5th
– 6th and will culminate in a free public performance on June 7th.
To participate in this workshop, please submit
1) a letter of interest and
2) up to 3 poems or 1000 words of prose to [email protected]. You may
alternatively post your application to P.O. Box 2895, 00100 Nairobi for
Selection for participation in the workshop will be based on the
quality of the work submitted and the applicant’s communicated interest in
or efforts made to propagate new literary forums and communities in Nairobi
and around the country.
We ask that applicants discuss what their vision is
for a new forum and articulate the reasoning for bringing one to
their chosen community. While we expect that many applicants will
themselves be writers, we equally invite literary enthusiasts to apply.
The deadline for submissions is May 7, 2008. Entries sent after this date
will not be accepted. Selected participants will be contacted by May 14,
2008. Questions and concerns may also be directed to the above addresses.
