I am delighted to report that yes indeed it pays to write! I attended a workshop dubbed ‘Words Over Weapons’ that was organized by Kenyan publishing house, StoryMoja in December 2009. Its purpose was to develop 10 short stories targeting teenagers that fell within pre-determined themes and settings . Our work as the 15 or so workshop attendees was to develop stories in our own imaginative ways that fulfilled these criterion.

I am overjoyed to say that two of my stories were chosen! They were posted here as ‘MARIA’ and ‘NERVES OF STEAL’. Due to contractual issues I have to take them down but they will appear as cartoon strips (I presume) on the Sambaza Peace site as soon as it goes live.
