Grantee on the road: Faith Mutheu Matheka

Emerging writer Faith Mutheu Matheka travelled from Nairobi (Kenya) to Abuja (Nigeria) to participate in the African Writer’s Conference between November 30 and December 2, 2018.

Faith is a published author, mentor, and student leader at the University of Nairobi. She is the founding director of, an organization dedicated to mentoring students in lower Eastern Kenya, and works as a mentor for women and young girls. She is also a regular contributor at Africa Magazine. She is committed to the evolution of what she calls a much-needed renaissance in the African literary space.

The African Writers’ Conference is an event conceptualized by the African Writers Development Trust in the aim of bringing together writers of African descent to a common platform, build bridges for networking, provide opportunities for writers to promote themselves, their work, and sustain a conversation on advocating interests of African Writers. This year’s edition was organized under the theme “Re-imagining African Literature: new voices, new narratives in the fight for the girl child.” Faith was invited as a guest speaker.

AMA is proud to have supported Faith’s trip. We wish her much success for her future endeavours!
