Africa Women Writers agree to network

Members of the committee

Participants at the symposium Women’s words: African worlds: “Renewing a dialogue between African women writers and women of African descent” – convened by DAC for women writers, scholars and performers held on 25 and 26 August 2010 – resolved to form a network of african writers, to represent their needs and that of their sisters on the continent. “We will build up a network, of all the sisters that are writing and want to see Africa play a progressive role at home and to the outside world”, said Jayne Cortez, one of the five elected committee members said today. Cortez is a seasoned writer and performer, poet and activist, based in New York.

Conference report will follow.
