“The Cape Town Book Fair had several engaging activities including poetry performances, book readings and publisher training forums. During this time we were able to meet with several writers and provide information about Kwani Trust.
We managed to meet the editors of two leading journals, Chimurenga Magazine and Timbiila, and share ideas. We also secured agreements from to published authors, to assist in training of young Kenyan writers. We attended training workshops on translation and publishing rights.
As a result of the connections made during the book fair, we plan to have a wider representation of African writers in our publications, events, and other projects.”
