Residency for African Women Writers



Ladies if you are a writer please apply.

Femrite in partnership with Karavan – Sweden is calling for submissions for the 5th Residency for African Women Writers. The main aim of the residency is to give women space to concentrate on their writing.

The 2-week residency will give selected writers the opportunity to reflect on their writing, connect with one another, read each others’ manuscripts and give feedback, interact with established writers and build literary bridges across cultures of the continent.​ 

The residency program will be held from 18th – 30th November 2013. The residency is also aimed at strengthening collaboration among women writers’ initiatives in Africa. For inquiries and submissions, please send emails to: [email protected].
