Last month a literary event was held at the British Library in London (UK). The theme of the panel event was ‘Beyond the Novel: Developing Contemporary African Writing’. I am not very sure about the addition of ‘Contemporary’ in the title.
As far as I can see it is difficult ‘Developing Past African Writing’. There is a good chance of preparing for ‘Developing Future African Writing’. Enough words about words, for now.
Rachel Knighton was present and she wrote about the developments during the panelsession.
