Non-fiction authors' association established in Kenya.


A new group for non-fiction authors in Kenya has been formed.

The Kenya Non-Fiction Authors' Association (Kenfaa) aims to promote and protect the professional and financial interests of non-fiction writers. It also intends to promote the reading culture in the country by taking authors to the people in the countryside to hold debates and answer questions from the public and students regarding their published works.

The organisation is part of the All Africa Academic Authorship Association (AAAAA) which is based in Durban, South Africa. It is also closely working with the Kenya Writers Association and the Kenya Book Development Council, reports the Africa News Service.
