By God’s inspiration, Writers Guild Kenya was founded as a Students’ Club on 16th June, 2014 in Kenyatta University by ‘the Father of Writers’ – Gabriel Dinda. In his quest to grow in writing (his passion), he was met with challenges and hence decided to solve them sustainably by creating a family of Writers. By then it was called ‘Writers Guild’ until March 2015 when it was formally registered as an Incubation Centre and Publisher in Kenya under the name Writers Guild Kenya (WGK). Since then, WGK has acted as a home of writers bonded with the love of a family and the goal of uniting a people. The family aims for one thing; to grow writing and encourage reading in a bid to serve God and humanity.
If whatever we do doesn’t give glory to God, and does not make another human being feel better and indeed be better, then there is no need of doing it. The two can only go hand in hand.
It all comes down to being loved, appreciated and feeling genuinely happy. That only happens in a family and friendly environment. Diversity is a form of progress which we embrace through friends and family.
Few things happen at the first instance; the more we try, the closer we get to achieving it. In all that we desire, we embrace the trial and error method. It is only until we tried that we can try again. Through encouraging and respecting one’s abilities, we tap into the talents and the ideas of our writers.
If reading was not important, then God would have not kept his word in writing. Our commitment is to read at least one book, two hours a day, each week, all year round
If it means reading in the bush or preserving nature for the next generation, we believe that’s our role. We are always reaching out to tomorrow through contemplation and evaluation.
