On this page I will be posting public events I’ll be involved in. The postings may connect directly with Afrikult., the literary organisation I co-founded that discusses, explores and celebrates African literatures, and will connect with my personal writing either from the blog, published stories or Lizard and Other Stories. You can subscribe for my monthly newsletter to get an update directly in your inbox. For any booking enquiries, please send an email to hello@matekiwrites.com.
