Goethe’s monthly creative writing resumes

Goethe’s monthly creative writing resumes


A two-day creative writing workshop is set to run at Goethe Institute on November 15th and 16th. The workshop will feature renowned Kenyan Billy Kahora, author of the non-fiction novella, The True Story of David Munyakei.


Kahora also wrote the screenplay for the Kenyan-German film Soul Boy and co-wrote Nairobi Half Life. His works have appeared in Chimurenga, Mc Sweeney’s, Granta Online, Internazionale and Vanity Fair.


He is also Managing Editor of Kwani Trust and has edited 7 issues of the Kwani journal as well as Kwani’s Nairobi 24 and Kenya Burning. An Associate Editor with the Chimurenga Chronic, Billy received several scholarships, led a number of Creative Writing workshops and was a judge of the 2009 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and the 2012 Commonwealth Short Story Prize.


His creative writing workshop in Kigali will explore how the writer discovers his or her narrative ‘voice’ in which to tell a story.


Participants will also be introduced to famous writers who illustrate excellent use of ‘voice’. One of the sessions will be an interactive look at submitted participant’s work and how this can be improved by reworking and rewriting through choice and improvement of ‘voice’


Speaking to kigalirat.com, Dr. Peter Stepan, Director of Goethe institute referred to Kahora as “a professional writer and critic who won’t return to Kenya before giving participants an empowering push for their own literary work.”


Sessions shall be kicking off from 10am to 6pm for the two days running, while entrance will be free.
