Jalada publishes its fourth anthology - The Language Issue

Jalada (pan-African writers’ collective) has recently announced a call for submissions for its fourth anthology.

Its aim is to publish literature by African authors and making it possible for writers to publish anything or execute any literary project quick and effectively.

They release a new anthology every quarter and so far have released four.

CapeTalk/702’s Azania Mosaka spoke to Moses Kilolo, Managing Editor of Jalada as well as Phumlani Pikoli, EWN Online Producer:

We have writers from around Africa, in south Africa, Kenya, Nigeria and others. We work together as a collective to publish other African writers work

Moses Kilolo, Managing Editor of Jalada

According to Kilolo, the fourth anthology was released last week called the Language issue. It explores all language problems and topics going on in Africa.

Pikoli says that he was drawn to the project for its ability to allow writers the freedom to play around with language and express their own views.

Jalada is asking writers to submit their original works written in their own languages and provide an accompanying English translation.
