My Book Is Set To Be Released By Farafina In October

Remember when I talked about getting published by Farafina in August last year? You know, the book my Farafina class of 2013 wrote and has been accepted as a publication of Kachifo…

Well, the book is all set to come to you, amongst other titles, in October!

According to a recent post on the Farafina website:

‘We are excited to announce our delightfully diverse list of titles to be released in October 2015. From children’s fiction to poetry and literary fiction, Kachifo Limited is sure to have something for everyone.’

The book penned by my class is titled A Handful of Dust. It is a collection of stories and below is its cover.A Handful Of Dust

A Handful of Dust speaks of the myriad struggles faced by contemporary Africans, with themes ranging from love and sexuality to the true meaning of home. A Handful of Dust is an anthology by the 2013 class of the annual Farafina Trust Creative Writing Workshop.
