Friends Funding for Lancaster/Uganda Women’s Writing Link

Dr Graham Mort has been successful in his bid to the Lancaster University Friends Programme with a proposal for linking Ugandan women to postgraduate mentors here in the UK, who will deliver monthly online tutorials in response to their work. The project will enable PhD students to widen their teaching experience and will be an invaluable developmental experience for the African women writers. It will also leave an archive on the website of the Centre for Transcultural Writing and Research of interest to other researchers in Creative Writing and in African literature and society.  The project is being developed in association with Femrite in Kampala.
