In collaboration with Jalada Africa, Saraba Magazine presents a panel on digital literary magazines at the Storymoja Festival, Kenya
What is the future of literary publications? Given the state of publishing infrastructure in most East and West African countries, the optimism that online journals will continue to matter is worried, or at best skeptical. The panel will examine the history of literary magazines on the continent, the familiar pitfalls, the requirements and benchmark for success, the nature of publishing infrastructure in light of the Internet, with the goal of suggesting a framework for longevity and continued relevance.
Date: Sunday 20th September
Time: 1.00pm – 3.30pm
Venue Nairobi Arboretum (Kanga tent), Nairobi
Participants: Wanjeri Gakuru, Dami Ajayi, Linda Musita, Moses Kilolo, Emmanuel Iduma
