Conversations and Interviews

The following Conversations and Interviews, drawn from the Ituĩka workshop on Literary Translation and Creative Writing, is our documentation of the work that happened in Naivasha on the 11th and 12 of November 2021. The workshop was first of its kind to focus explicitly on Kenyan languages other than English and Kiswahili. To remember this important and defining event in Kenyan literary ecology, we share the sessions, conversations, and interviews as an archival project for remembrance and research.
