The Miles Morland Foundation is delighted that two of our Scholars, Doreen Baingana and Troy Onyango, as well as Remy Ngamije, who was shortlisted for our scholarships in 2020, are on the short-list for this year’s Ako Caine Prize for African Writing. We think of Doreen as being the den mother of Ugandan writing as she gives such support and encouragement to countless other writers. Her Caine story, ‘Lucky’, is a companion to the novel about Alice Lakwena that she wrote on her MMF scholarship year. Troy was a recipient of the MMF’s annual scholarship to the University of East Anglia’s Creative Writing School. He is another writer who has given great support to fellow writers. His latest venture being as founder and editor-in-chief of Lolwe. We are proud to be associated with Doreen, Troy and Remy and wish them all the best.
