Nyanza Literary Initiative (NALIF) is a non-profit that aims to elevate engagement in the arts in the Western part of Kenya, formerly Nyanza Province.

NALIF plans to nurture and celebrate local talent over the long-term through this multiple-prong process:

  • An annual literary contest
  • Annual workshops
  • A local reading series to encourage and sustain literary growth

NALIF also has a multi-year ambitious project to:

  • Build a space for creatives from the region, and nationwide
  • Establish a transport fund for NALIF finalists to attend workshops or residencies
