Abbey Olekwa

Agent: nil

Kampala, Uganda


Iam a 22 year old law student in Uganda struggling to be a writer. I am self driven, motivated and my writing comes from within my passion. I don't subscribe to any particular traditional school on the litearture, style or class of writing, i believe substance is far superior than form. I've never been published before. I write short stories for a couple of newspapers in my country. Iam not a writer by default, maybe perhaps because Shakespeare does not really get to me or maybe because I believe Mark Twain's work would not have made it in this era!Of course we can't relive the age of Romanticism, we can't resurrect Emmerson et al! I would like to meet writers who can inspire me. Iam not dreaming of fortunes out of a possible writing career, I am basically writing because I love to. I would love to contact someone out there.

Interests: Watching movies, reading anything, writing, meeting new peolple especailly writers.
