Event Details

Creative Writing, Translations, and Publishing

Jalada Africa began as informal gatherings to refine and enjoy each other’s artistic productions, and grew into a pan-African interactive space where writers share their work, edit and critique each other, and provide guidance on ways of developing craft. We extend this gift of giving through our Creative Writing and Translations Master Classes.

It is a unique opportunity to learn from the world’s best voices in an up close and personal setting. The Master Classes will consist of 20 participants and will run in Kampala, as two, three-hour sessions, for one day. All the Master Classes will be facilitated by highly proficient and renowned writers/ translators.

Participation in the Master Class is open to promising writers and translators between 18-40 years old. Applicants are asked to submit a 500-word sample of their work, fiction or non-fiction, published or non-published, and/or a letter explaining why they think they are deserving of the opportunity.

To be selected to participate in the Master Classes send an e-mail to m.editor@jalada.org . The Subject Line of the email must be “Kampala: Jalada Master Class”. The Sample of the work and/or the application letter must be copied in the email. No attachments will be evaluated. Please include your name and mobile number.

The applications open on February 10th and close on February 24th, 2017 . Late submissions will not be considered. Successful applicants will be notified on, or before, 3rd March 2017.
