Welcome to episode 29 of the Writing Africa Podcast. It’s a blockbuster one as we say goodbye to author, poet, playwright, and academic Ama Ata Aidoo and South African writer, political analyst, journalist, and broadcaster Eusebius McKaiser.
We will be chatting about the Kendeka Prize, Arablit Short Story Prize, and the Brooklyn Caribbean Literary Festival (BCLF) Short Fiction Story Contest as well as recommending that you read Caribbean books this Read Caribbean Month.
We have an interview this week. We caught up with Nobel laureate Abdulrazak Gurnah at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2022. Apologies for the quality of the interview sound. The interview was conducted in a corner at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Thank you so much Frankfurter Buchmesse for making the interview happen.
