The Beverley Nambozo Poetry Award

began by writing about my family, my heart throbs, my pain and gradually escalated to death, exposing scams amongst close friends and about my deepest turmoil which would take perpetual insistence to unravel. With this knowledge and the realization that poetry needs a platform to manifest its presence in Uganda, I began the poetry award. This was in 2008, also when my first born was about two months and when I began questioning my impact on this large universe and how I could reach out to at least two people in my entire life-time.
