Hey, so we’re back with our brand new site! But I’m sure you’ve noticed something else has changed…well, firstly we are sad to say the threesome have now become a couple. Henry Brefo stepped down in February to pursue his first love: Ghanaian chiefdom.  He is now studying for his PhD at University of Birmingham, and we are thrilled for where this journey takes him! #NanaHenryBrefo

New Site: We are excited to share our new site with you, from our engagement pages you’ll keep up to date with projects we are working on, workshops we are delivering to our blog posts where we continue to share bite-size reviews and invite you to submit a piece!

Internship: We are also launching a three-month Web Editorial and Social Media internship, more information will be announced next week.

Workshop Outreach: We have partnered with the Royal African Society’s education programme to deliver outreach workshops ahead of Africa Writes this year.  This partnership is meaningful because its integral to the work that we do in bringing African Literature to new audiences.

So that’s it for now, you’ll be hearing from us regularly but in the meantime please sign up to our mailing list!

With literary love,

Marcelle and Zaahida
