A few weeks ago I mentioned that Rwandan writers were asked to submit stories for a new anthology. The deadline came and went and Huza Press, the people behind the project, tell us that they got even more entries than they had anticipated. Success!
Those who submitted their stories and are now in the running for the US$1,000 first prize have very good news. They mentors they will be working with are some of the biggest names in African literature and include Shadreck Chikoti, Juliane Okot Bitek, Jennifer Makumbi and Taiye Selasie.
We shall be keeping you abreast as more mentors are signed up for this exciting venture.
