20th Time of the Writer 13 - 18 March 2017

Approximately 20 writers from South Africa, Africa and different parts of the world will feature in this year’s week-long edition. This year’s edition will include a variety of roundtable discussions, readings, seminars, book launches, and developmental programmes such as workshops, master classes and motivational talks.   
Mr. David wa Maahlamela, Director of the CCA, said: “This year marks the second decade of the Time of the Writer thus we have a full programme that includes the launching of a national literary gem, uNodumehlezi kaMenzi, an isiZulu version of (the late) Professor Mazisi Kunene’s internationally-acclaimed Emperor Shaka the Great. As we successfully celebrated the 20th edition of Poetry Africa last year, this edition, under the theme ‘The past paving the future’, is also going to be spectacular.”
