Storytelling Session is Open for Submissions!

In November I got together with a few writerly friends to read short samples of the fiction we had written  at Jacaranda Cultural Centre in Mandala, the last neighbourhood before getting into the busiest part of town . I thought it would be a chill evening with a couple of Blantyre's book fans... what I did not expect was a full house, intense enthusiasm and excitement, and a sparked hunger for more! No fewer than 3 unrelated people asked me when the next event would be, while budding writers and avid audience members filled up the attendance sheet. Turns out Blantyre needs stories...  So, as promised, we got back to the drawing board and schemed and planned until we could plan and scheme no more... We have settled on the evening of the 19th of January 2018 for the next session, and aim to host it every month on a Friday. For writers who are interested in attending the next or future events, please send your submissions to  or just email to
