Its great news to Uganda and her writers,to have this international conference hosted here.Congs to Goretti and AWT! This certainly boosts Kampala’s bid for a UNESCO city of Literature.How I wish you would invite some of us from Karamoja Writers’ Association to attend and present some of our poems too! What do you say to that, Sister Mildred? Remember out of the marginalized may be a spark of Gold!
