The Afrolit Sans Frontieres Virtual Literary Festival was hosted by African writers from cities all over the world over the Internet from April 20-27, 2020.
The Afrolit Sans Frontiers Virtual Literary Festival, an initiative by and for writers of African origin, started in March as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic international lockdown. The second edition, referred to as “Season 2,” also featured some of the leading names in African letters today with curation by Maaza Mengiste and festival founder Zukiswa Wanner. It had 16 writers from 14 countries streaming either on Instagram or Facebook from 13 cities in English, French, or Portuguese over eight days under the festival theme “What I Wish You’d Ask Me.” There were also two sessions where the festival curators interacted with writers from the first edition of the festival.
Here are the writers who featured over the eight days of the Afrolit Sans Frontieres Virtual Literary Festival Season 2.
