LOLWE CLASSES: Experimental and Genre-bending Writing Masterclass with Mohale Mashigo | 30 April

“To break conventional forms with purpose, to create a work that resists categorisation while retaining its coherence, is one of the most tasking things in the literary world. Experimental and genre-bending writing is full of risks. In this masterclass, the author of the award-winning novel The Yearning will provide you with the literary devices necessary to experiment meaningfully with prose.

Scholarships are available for this masterclass. For details, please see: LOLWE CLASSES
