Africa Writes 2017: The Issue of Fear

Africa Writes 2017: The Issue of Fear

The Issue of Fear
Saturday 1 July, British Library, London

Launch of the Jalada 05/Transition 123 collaborative issue with Sara Bruya, Novuyo Tshuma, Richard Oduor Oduku and Wanjeri Gakuru in conversation with Ellah Allfrey.

Jalada 05 / Transition 123 was born of the 2015 meeting in Uganda, and represents an exciting opportunity for both organisations to build on each other’s strengths and access points to a global readership. Together, they present this collection of essays, fiction, poetry, and conversation on the theme of Fear. Contributors were asked to reflect on our phobias, the things that make us human or, indeed, inhuman. Our fears, and the dance between fear and fearlessness, shape how we live, how we interact, and how we conceptualize ourselves and others.
