Below is the list of the African women authors we wrote about for #WomenWrite August. This coven of talented writers, poets and publishers is now all in one place for you to explore. Such range, such diversity! You could use this list to read your way around Africa or around the history of African literature or explore alternatives to the dominant narratives often presented in male-authored books.

Do let us know in the comments if there’s anyone else you think we should have included.

And if you’ve enjoyed any books by these great women.

Happy Reading!


views, reviews and interviews about books we love.
