Lorna Likiza is a Fiction Writer/ Blogger from Nakuru, Kenya. She began writing at the tender age of 7 in Lower Primary School. Having discovered WordPress in September 2013, Lorna blogged on a variety of topics including feminism, before finally deciding to concentrate on what has always been her passion; Fiction.
Partially trained in a Bachelor of Arts in Travel and Tourism Management from the University of Nairobi, she has previously worked as a French Tutor and in the Hospitality Industry. She was forced to temporarily terminate her studies in her 3rd year, but plans on resuming at an opportune time.
With a desire to equally promote talent, Lorna encourages any established or upcoming Writer or Poet, to send in their work to her blog. It is her hope that this eventually morphs into a bigger platform, where Writers and Poets can feel free to explore their talent. Sometimes, when need arises, she will do a non-fiction post.
Awards and Literary Achievements;

If you would like your work to be featured on the blog, kindly send poetry of any length or a short story of 2,000-2,500 words, together with a short bio and a recent photo of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org.
African themed stories/poetry are highly encouraged, though it would equally be refreshing to read stories/poetry from other continents.
