Africa Writes returns this summer at the British Library and Rich Mix, and we are looking for committed and interested volunteers who are passionate about African literature. As a volunteer you’ll learn more about the Royal African Society as an organisation, be involved in some exciting programmes and events, and get an opportunity to meet like-minded people. Many of the programme staff started their involvement with the festival as volunteers!

Our volunteers tell us that the experience is valuable for gathering skills, having fun and meeting new people (and amazing writers)!

Africa Writes takes place from Friday 29 June to Sunday 1 July. If you would like read more and be a part of the Africa Writes 2018 team, download AW2018_Call for volunteers and send your application to Marcelle Akita on ma130@soas.ac.uk by Monday 16 April 2018.
