FEMRITE is calling for submissions for the 6th Residency for African Women Writers,

which will be co-hosted with the Swedish literary magazine Karavan, in October 2014.

The 10-Day Writing Residency aims to give women writers space to reflect on their writing,

connect with one another, read each others’ manuscripts and give feedback,

interact with established writers and build literary bridges across cultures of the continent.

The residency is also aimed at strengthening collaboration among women writers’ initiatives in Africa.

Open to an African woman writer who lives on the Continent and needs such space and able to write & express herself in English.
