An Extra Special 'Meet' Series

by - 10:01

The 'Meet' Series is my chance to interview anyone I would love to meet that is involved in African literature. Well, this festive season, I will be 'meeting' two wonderful authors who between them have produced a variety of works, ranging from children's books, YA and adult fiction to non-fiction. 

I am so excited to announce that next week as part of the 'Meet' Series, I will be featuring Zukiswa Wanner and Joanne Macgregor who share their thoughts on writing for children and young adults versus an older audience, on the inspiration behind their novels, on what books they are reading now and more.

Here's a sneak peek:

Zukiswa Wanner on books that have influenced her.

"Every writer and every book I have read has influenced me. The good books yell out to me the type of writing I would like to aspire to do and the bad works teach me how not to write." 

Joanne Macgregor on what draws her to YA writing.
"I write what I would like to read, and I love reading YA books. I don’t think there were very many of them around when I grew up (we seemed to go from Enid Blyton straight to Wilbur Smith), so maybe I’m indulging in a second adolescence!"

  1. I read this MEET' SERIES. The series was really awesome. But there are also so many writer out there but they don't know how to publish their stuff or don't know ho search publisher. Visit self publishing you will find amazing publisher who will publish your book at cheap rate.

  2. The main disadvantage to the online casino concept 라이브 카지노 is that it does not allow for the same amount of realism that you would get from the offline casinos. While this is definitely true, it is at the same time something that is inherent to the game.
