a new chapter for sa literature

Mandla Langa is the executive vice-president of the South African PEN. He has taken part in the discussion that started with high speed at the Franschhoek Literary Festival recently. There was a writer who declared he would no longer attend white literary festivals. Another discussion was called at #LitApartheid. The discussion is not over yet.

Now Langa has put forward the idea of a National Writers’ Conference.  The debate is still going on. And I hope some good writing will come out of it.
