Afrolit Sans Frontieres writers.

A snapshot of the Afrolit Sans Frontieres Virtual Literary Festival.

The Afrolit Sans Frontiers Virtual Literary Festival was hosted by African writers from cities around the world from Monday, March 23 to Monday, March 30, 2020.

The Afrolit Sans Frontiers Virtual Literary Festival is an initiative from writers of African origin curated by Zukiswa Wanner. Sixteen writers from 10 African countries shared their own original work from 15 different cities in English, French, Lingala, and Portuguese to a global virtual audience online over eight days.

The festival format was writers reading sex scenes from their work at the official festival Instagram page if possible. Some of the writers were more comfortable using Facebook. When they had finished their readings, they fielded questions from the online audience about anything like the writing craft, their favourite writers or books, and whether they preferred Poetry or Cocaine (Prosecco or Roset).

Here are links to the sessions with the 16 writers who streamed from cities around the world.
