Storymoja returns to Nairobi

Storymoja is the most influential festival of creative writing in East Africa.

The festival covers short story writing, storytelling (also with mobile phone photography), theatre, cartoons, children's writing, dance, blogging, mainstream journalism, illustrations and graphics.

Storymoja continues to commission books, supply school libraries, arrange masterclasses (this year one of the subject is Traffic Jam).
