Jalada Africa is a pan-African writers' collective, made up of writers who took part in a Writing Workshop by Kwani Trust, Granta & British Council in 2013. Jalada Africa's aim:
'to publish literature by African authors regularly by
making it as easy as possible for any member to publish anything or
execute any literary project as quickly and effectively as possible'.
Their first project, an anthology of twelve short stories, Sketches of a Bald Woman in the Semi-Nude and Other Stories, (loosely themed around insanity) was published in January 2014 and is available to read on their website.
Their next anthology will be published in April 2014 - and their aim is to publish new anthologies every quarter.
