Africa Writes returns this summer at the British Library and Rich Mix, and we are building a team of 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)!

Applications for volunteering are now closed. If you’d like to get in touch to find out how you can support the festival, please contact Marcelle Akita on ma130@soas.ac.uk.
