We are a community of women writers from Uganda, nurturing each other to write novels, short stories, poetry, children’s books, true life stories and much more. FEMRITE - Uganda Women Writers Association is an indigenous Non-Governmental Organisation that promotes women writing in Uganda. The organsation was founded by Mary Karooro Okurut in 1995 and officially launched on 3rd May 1996 at the Uganda National Cultural Centre.

The organisation aims at creating an enabling atmosphere for women to write, tell and publish their stories.  FEMRITE has since inception spread wings and grown in membership, publishing, training and promoting writers, some of whom have received national and international recognition.
