New Book Alert: Odokonyero!

“[T]he fruit of many labours,” said Bwesigye Bwa Mwesigire, founder of CACE1)Centre for African Cultural Excellence and co-editor of our newest anthology, Odokonyero: A Writivism Anthology of Short Fiction by Emerging Ugandan Writers.

We are proud and honoured to be the publishing partner of the CACE’s Writivism Literary Initiative and we’re particularly excited about this anthology that seeks to celebrate the work that CACE has done in the last five years through Writivism.

Odokonyero came out of a series of writing workshops which were facilitated by poet, Nick Makoha, and novelist, Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi. The young writers were mentored by Angela Kintu Rwabose, Ayeta Anne Wangusa, Beatrice Lamwaka, Lillian Akampurira Aujo, Melissa Kiguwa, and Philippa Namutebi Kabali-Kagwa.

The featured stories are by George Ocen, Twasiima Patricia Bigirwa, Charlotte Akello, Brian Oduti, Auma Dilish Priscilia, Kakinda Maria Birungi, Okello Isaac Apen, Marjorie Nassolo, Abalo Irene Otttto, Shelah Owino, Gladys Oroma, Jacob Katumusiime, Esther Mirembe, Mugisha Fred Sunday, Edna Ninsiima, Semakula Emmanuel, Aber Racheal Aboda, and Godiva Akullo.

A special schools edition is also being published alongside the general trade edition.

The book is available on Amazon in paperback and kindle formats.
