About Us

The Writers Pen is a Kenyan Publishing House with an aim of Awakening Dreams by connecting both Writers and readers on one platform. We offer both traditional and self-publishing and print-on-demand publishing services. We aim at awakening dreams long forgotten through art and mentorship, dreams that give impact to lives; dreams that have a bearing on Africans and contribution to the global village. Dreams are important to us for we believe that there is a lot of lost dreams in Africa that could bring a positive impact once awakened.
Our focus is summed up by the motto: Awakening Dreams, with a key objective being to create a platform for writers to gain through their art and talents and give them a chance to get published and reach more audience through story-telling, poetry, drama, music and any artistic expression.
The Writers Pen was formed to help upcoming writers to reach their potential goals through mentoring, exposure, marketing and promoting their works.
The partnership with Writers aims at mutual growth in an attempt to enrich authors’ lives, encourage the writing and reading culture of African peoples, and leave the written word for future generations.

Mission Statement

We have a mission to provide a platform for stories from a varied range of writers, poets and many others. We aim at capturing, recording, storing and transmitting their knowledge for future generations. Our focus is on Africans on the continent with a view to enabling them to tell stories in their own perspective; in their own voices. We are committed to continual assessment of our client and readership needs so as to ensure there is alignment with our core values, aspirations and service to meet these needs.


PUBLISHING: Publishing is our core business with focus on production and dissemination of works of literature. Our market (for both author and reader) is global with emphasis on Afrocentric themes. We look for unique works, especially those that capture indigenous knowledge. These could be novels, short stories, poetry, songs, and drama.

MANUSCRIPT EVALUATION: So you have completed what you consider a publishable piece of work, but need validation on how sound the work is and need to know areas for improvement. Indeed, you may need advice with respect to publishing the work. We use our wide experience in publishing to review the work, assess it for suitability for publication and advise on areas of improvement, if any. The outcome of the assessment would be one the following:

  • Publishable as it is without changes,
  • Publishable with minor changes,
  • Publishable with extensive changes
  • Not recommended for publication.

Note that our assessment is subjective given our experience. Authors are advised seek far-reaching input from others to get a more solid view of the suitability of their work for publication.

EDITING: So you have this work which has passed the “evaluation test” for publication and now you want the work readied for publication. We can help. We have extensive experience in editing, be it in works of fiction or non-fiction; be it a creative piece of work or otherwise; be it in the form poetry, drama, novels or some other. We offer the full-range of editing services from structure and organization to copy editing. Once editing is completed, you choose whether to enter a publishing arrangement with us, some other publisher or do it yourself. No publishing agreement is implied by the editing assignment to us.

GHOSTWRITING: So you have a story to tell but find that you need help to tell the story. There are many people like you. And many do end up telling their stories. If you find yourself in such a situation, contact us. We can help you by working with our experienced writers. You sit with the writer to who you tell the story. In turn, the writer would transcribe your tale using a readable organization and structure, and play it back to you to affirm it authenticity. Once approved by you, we proceed to editing and ready it for publication. Note that, no publishing agreement is implied by the ghost writing assignment to us.

E-BOOK PREPARATION: The e-book is fast becoming the choice for distribution of published material. This is inevitable given the proliferation of e-readers, the ease of distribution of e-content and potential savings in printing and distribution costs. Unlike paper-based products, the cost of e-books can be substantially low and affordable for a large segment of population. There is more, a large home library can easily be accommodated in a single e-reader. Governments and education institutions across the world focused on mass education are investing in electronic gadgets for schools and e-book distribution infrastructure. The e-book is the disruptive force in book publishing and distribution. We can convert your existing or forthcoming publications to your chosen e-format, complete with your chosen form of digital rights management (DRM) system.
