The FEMRITE 2017 Week of Literary Activities was held from 24th to the 28th July. It ran under the theme; Life Writing – Recognising silenced voices. The Week of Literary Activities is an annual event that FEMRITE organises to showcase Ugandan Literature and celebrate Ugandan writers. The tradition that started in 2000 has continued to amplify Ugandan literary voices. This year we are organising the week in partnership with the University of Barcelona, The Uganda Society, Writivism and Babishai Niwe poetry Foundation.
