Writers Do Laundry Too + south africa literature

The 16th Time of the Writer Opens March 18th (South Africa)

Date: 18 - 23 March 2013

A select group of leading writers from South Africa, Africa and abroad will gather for a thought-provoking week of literary dialogue and exchange of ideas at the Time of the Writer International Writers Festival. Presented by the Centre for Creative Arts (University of KwaZulu-Natal) and made possible through principal funding from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund and other valued partners, this 16th edition takes place in Durban between 18th to 23rd March 2013.

During this activity-rich week, audiences can expect to hear the opinions of award-winning writers, from a variety of political and social contexts, on the creative and artistic processes and perspectives which inform their writing. Evening readings, book launches and discussions will take place at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre while wide-reaching day programmes (free) are spread across Durban and surrounding areas as part of the festival’s ongoing effort to promote and nurture a culture of reading, writing and creative expression. This includes school visits, a publishing forum, and a range of seminars and workshops.
