Our Story

In 2014, a spark ignited. A group of students at Kenyatta University, under the leadership of Gabriel Dinda, envisioned a platform to empower aspiring writers and preserve stories for generations to come. This spark blossomed into Writers Guild-Kenya, the vibrant community we are today.

Our journey has been one of continuous growth and impact. We’ve nurtured the talents of countless writers, empowering many who never dared to dream of putting pen to paper.

FAQs by our Writers

How can I create a time to write?

Writing, like all other things in life, requires proper planning. Many people claim to have written books in their minds. What they seem to lack is time to translate them into real books. The best way is to give yourself a target to write, i.e. 500 words daily, keep your word and have an accountability partner to hold you to account

How can I deal with procrastination? I always feel the best time to write is tomorrow.

You perhaps haven’t internalized the benefits that writing will bring to you and the joy of seeing your work out there. In addition, this could be a reflection of how easy you are on yourself. Being that the body likes easy things, you get away with this. An accountability partner may help you, and attending different writing sessions/events to get challenged might also help.

Don’t Take Our Word for it…

“I walked into a Writers Guild event at the National Museum of Kenya in Nairobi on the 27th of August 2017, I was met with a smile and told to welcome home. That smile and home has held my hand as a writer and helped me grow, I have since published two children’s storybooks, thanks to the love and support accorded to me. Writers Guild Kenya not only builds you as a writer but helps you grow as a person, the supportive community that comes together to hold each other’s hands is something out of the ordinary in the world we live in today, and that is the power of Writers Guild Kenya. God bless this home!”
