Since Africa Writes’ inception in 2012, over 6,000 people have attended the festival, which has garnered an international following and reputation. Africa Writes relies on a core team as well as a generous community of partners, contributors and friends that work together each year to make the festival happen. This year in order to bring you the absolute best programming and ensure the festival’s future sustainability, we are charging a modest fee for Weekend and Day Passes.
