How To Join the Writers Guild

The admission process is divided into three phases:
• Application (Online Form)- The Writer shows interest and fills the form in the appropriate category.
• Fitness Test- The prospective writer takes a Quick fitness test. The Writer is then Waitlisted, to be contacted during the next admission.

The Fitness test will be done with a view to informing the writer about:

  •  What Writers Guild Kenya does.
  •  The values, vision, aims, and culture of Writers Guild Kenya
  •  Their responsibilities as a writer.
  • What to expect as a member of Writers Guild Kenya.
  • Operations/activities/events within Writers Guild Kenya.
  • The journey of hope.
  • Service to God and humanity.

 Admission- The Writer is admitted and oriented into the family.

  • The intakes are only open in January-February, June-July.
  • Once a Writer has filled the form, they are required to attend our events and activities and read/research about us, to have a glimpse of what to expect once their application is validated.

A Writers Guild Kenya member will always remain a member for a period of four years.
By the end of this period, a writer must have reached an expertise level and gotten published (if this was their goal).
At the time of exit, the writer will join an alumni Family. This kind of members will always be in the heart of Writers Guild Kenya. They will always be considered to link writers/Writers Guild Kenya to available writing opportunities.
Members will be graduating to the next category as soon as they are approved by mentors. However, this may not affect expert members to join the Alumni group before completion of the four years.
