TAKE ME TO LAMU

In ‘23 we are changing our name from the Lamu Writing Retreat to Littlegig Lamu.


We are moving from being a pure writing retreat to a first-of-its-kind: a 4 day-and-night African writing and music micro-festival. There will be talks by writers and speakers who are experts in the fields of African fiction, memoir, poetry, screen-writing and digital writing. And there will be music performances and dinners in wondrous places across Shela Village, Lamu Old Town and Manda Island.

You don’t need to be a published writer to apply but you do need a desire to engage in writing-based talks and sessions. Application is necessary so that we ensure a crowd of diverse origins, ages, stages and orientations.

Applications are now open. The price will be announced and bookings will open on 1 December 2022.
