Afriwowri (African womxn writers) Literary Project Team, in collaboration with Writivism, The Sparkle Writers Hub, The Radioactive Blog and Africa Matters is excited to announce the official release of the anthology ‘The Different Shades of a Feminine Mind’. ‘The Different Shades of a Feminine Mind’ (A daybook of the African woman’s narrative) is an anthology of short stories which explores diverse feminine themes from a womxn’s perspective. The purpose of this project was to curate fresh, unique and startling voices telling a holistic collection of daily African experiences which appreciates the nuances in each story. This book features stories from writers from Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, Uganda, Kenya, Botswana, Eastern Cape, and the United States. The book will only be available as an electronic book (pdf: digital book), and is also available as a free download from different sites such ISSUU and datafilehost.
Beverley Nambozo Nsengiyunva, writer, poet and founder of the Babishai Niwe (BN) Poetry Foundation praised the short stories:
“I deeply appreciate that the narratives sway from the usual and hold their own, in unapologetic, melodramatic and confident poise. The characters are people we know, they are a mirror of whom we purport to be, of our urban and rural communities.”
