The Writivism Team: We Salute You

Writivism Festival 2015 came and left and impacted so many people. It had its good parts and its not so good.

The good was amazing with some of the best panels, master classes and keynote addresses you can find anywhere on the African continent where literature is concerned. The not so good included confusion that sometimes reigned, the issues with venues strewn across a traffic filled city and the food. For a three year old festival I’d say that they did pretty well.

Through it all the staff and volunteers of the festival stuck with us sometimes to unholy hours. These were the unheard of heros and sheroes having to get venues sorted, find transport, solve many problems and they always did it without complaining. With a smile on their faces.
