Welcome to Femrite The Uganda Women Writers Association

We are a community of women writers from Uganda, nurturing each other to write novels, short stories, poetry, children’s books and real/true life stories and much more. Femrite is an indigenous, non-governmental, non-profit making women’s organization that was officially launched on 3rd May 1996 by a small team of women led by Mary Karooro Okurut.

Femrite has since then spread wings and grown in membership, publishing, training and promoting writers, some of whom have received national and international recognition.

Strategic goal: To be an African centre of creative women writers
Our values:
