The Pan-African Literary Festival (PALF)

Our beloved city is about to be the centre of a paper storm of readings, workshops & discussions: the Pan-African Literary Forum (PALF) is finally upon us! Featured writers, publishers and poets will include Tsitsi Dangarembga, Binyavanga Wainaina, Kadija Sesay, Dr. Abena Busia, Kofi Awoonor, Mohammed Ben Abdullah & many, many more participating in a host of readings, panel discussions, and other events across Accra and Kokrobitey.

The conference schedule is up on the PALF website. Please note that events and venues are still very much subject to change so make sure to regularly check for updates.

Space at most venues will be limited, but the organizers hope to pack in as many people as possible. Most events are free of charge, but the workshops will require pre-registration at the orientation session at the NYU Center (in Labone, near Ashesi University) this Friday at 7pm.

The Forum is a rare opportunity to engage with literature, especially from the Diaspora: something somewhat rare in Accra. So don't miss out!
