The 2017 Writivism Festival just wrapped up in Kampala. It was held from 17 to 20 August. An initiative of the Center for African Cultural Excellence (CACE), the festival has, since 2013, been a leading crowd-pulling hotspot of literary activities on the continent.

Courtesy of Writivism’s Facebook page, we have some photos: from workshops to performances to panels on beauty. The captions are from their page also.
