About

Ugandan PEN holds monthly literary meetings for members, and has created school clubs and organised mentoring seminars in schools. The Centre is also involved in promoting writing in local languages among writers since the government introduced expanded the teaching of local languages in schools.

The Centre is currently running a project to ‘write Ugandan childhood memories,’ involving a series of workshops for young people aged 12 – 16 and intense mentoring of 90 children to develop their writing style and develop narratives relating to different areas of life in Uganda and their own experience.
