The Africa Century International African Writers Conference



For more information...

Founded by the wRite associates, in partnership with the Department of Arts and Culture, , the Africa Century International African Writers Conference - a legacy project of the South African Literary Awards - was inaugurated in Mangaung, Free State Province, in 2012. It is set to become a Mecca of who is who of the African literati, the Diaspora and the entire globe where the celebration of African letters occupies centre stage

This historical gathering of literary intellectuals and authors from across the world, is, as the then-OAU’s Conference of African Ministers of Education and Culture (meeting in Coutonou, Benin, in 1991) resolved,

“� to afford the African people a moment of pause within which to reflect on the contribution of African Writers to the development of the Continent”.

The programme activities include literary seminars, discussions, writing workshops, lecture, storytelling, readings, puppetry, poetry performances, book reviews, book exhibitions, literary music concert and the South African Literary Awards gala ceremony.
