Hello, Welcome!

Thank you for visiting I am A writer project's page, a project that aims at making young writers dreams in Uganda come to reality! through provision of  learning resources, support and availing a platform for young writers to share their pieces.

Background

Many Young writer in Ugandan schools have written pieces that only stop at their desks due to education system that only looks at academics marks but what a student can do. about 81% of the students in the World say this way of studying is boring.

These Young writers wish to be listened to, supported, facilitated and to share what they wish to talk and share to the world in their pieces. They alwayask themselves Where do we find resources, Who to listen?, Who to listen?  Who to share with?. All these they retain to themselves since they have no one to support them and drop their ambition to become writers.

I Am A Writer

I am A writer is a project intended to guide young writers on how to create relevant written pieces, support and create platforms for these young people to share to audience they always felt far away. It also aims at making a resource and learning center for young writers in Uganda.

I call upon Schools, Teachers and all well wishers to join this project to support young writers in Uganda make away to their dreams. Lets empower and inspire them to say "I am A writer"
