The Uganda Women Writers’ Federation (FEMRITE) has announced calls for its seventh FEMRITE Regional Residency for African women writers, to be held in Kampala.
The residency will be co-hosted by the quarterly Swedish magazine, Karavan.
FEMRITE recognises that a women’s biggest challenge has always been a lack of space and time to write, and addresses this issue by providing space for women to write, to promote intercultural literary discourse, to find new literary voices, and to celebrate African women’s literature.
Only African women, currently living in Africa and working on an English fiction or memoir manuscript who haven’t had more than one book published prior to applying, will be considered for the residency.
