Kanjaye selected for continental workshop
Kanjaye’s story titled A Change in Sleeping Arrangements earned her place on the possible list of being featured in an anthology by young adults across Africa.
The story talks about the temporary separation of two parents and how it affects the whole family.
Kanjaye said she was excited, as the workshop will give her a learning experience and an opportunity to meet new African writers who will help her improve her writing.
“It is very surprising and exciting. I did not think I would be chosen among the 400 entries,” she said.
Kanjaye has been selected with other Malawian blossoming writer, Yamikani Mlangiza for her story titled A Love of Her Dream.
According to the Nation dated January 8 2019, Mlangiza’s story is about a girl’s journey exploring mental illness.
“I am thrilled to get this opportunity,” she said.
The Duo will join other four up and coming writers from Rwanda and Uganda at the workshop.
The workshop will be held from February 11-15 in Kigali, Rwanda.
The workshop will run consecutively with others in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Johannesburg, South Africa, Nairobi, Kenya, Dakar, Senegal, Lome, Togo and Accra, Ghana while the Lagos edition will occur from February 4-8.
