how to hack the ‘colonial literary sytem’

The debate still rages on, at least the articles on the debate still come flooding in. The debate that was offically started at the Franschhoek Literary Festival in South Africa. At that Festival the writer Thando Mgqolozana made known (not for the first time) that he will no longer attend white literary festivals.

At an other meeting under the #LitApartheid people discussed implications, actions, new ways. One of these ways (not very new) is self-publishing. Mofenyi Malepe talked about his experience in this field. Maybe this will be a black post-colonial literary structure.
