iGen Teen Authors & Artists

This is a 1-year school holidays training program for teenage Authors (Fiction and Non-Fiction), Poets, Illustrators and Graphic Designers.

CLC Kenya Authors Collaboration and iGen Kids Program celebrate children as authors and artists by giving them a voice through publishing. This is because all children have a story to share. We partner with like-minded organizations to offer a platform to share diverse stories widely through an artist-led publishing process.
