Book Fair


The international book fair at Africa Writes offers readers a huge range of exciting new books, indie publications and rare finds. You can purchase copies of the books written by our festival guest authors, and will have the chance to get copies signed after the book launch events.

Applying for a stand

You can apply for a book fair stand at the eighth edition of  Africa Writes, held Friday 5th – Sunday 7th July 2019 at the British Library.

Stands will be available on Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th July, and provide an opportunity to talk directly with audience members about your books or platform. Over the festival weekend, we expect around 1,500 visitors.

The form should take around 5-10 minutes to complete. Deadline for applications: Thursday 2nd May.



If you are keen to sell your work or stock at the fair but are not able to book a stand, please get in touch and we can explore other options. Email Caitlin Pearson at
