Our Story

Writers Guild Kenya started as a club in Kenyatta University in June 2014. As a club, it was known as Writers Guild. The club operated in Kenyatta University organizing a number of activities and programs to grow writing in the university. With time, following the success of Writing growth in KU and active social media presence, interest grew from different universities and soon branches we started in Kakamega, Eldoret and later Mombasa. With this, there was a great need to have a central coordination point.
