Writers Guild Kenya history
By God’s inspiration, Writers Guild Kenya was founded as a Students’ Club on 16th June, 2014 in Kenyatta University by ‘the Father of Writers’ – Gabriel Dinda.
In his quest to grow in writing (his passion), he was met with challenges and hence decided to solve them sustainably by creating a family of Writers.
By then it was called ‘Writers Guild’ until March 2015 when it was formally registered as an Incubation Centre and Publisher in Kenya under the name Writers Guild-Kenya (WGK).
Since then, WGK has acted as a home of writers bonded with the love of a family and the goal of uniting a people. The family aims for one thing; to grow writing and encourage reading in a bid to serve God and humanity.
