I continue “Virtually Yours” my partnership with Goethe Namibia, a series of online discussions with contemporary authors from Africa. “Virtually Yours” aims to create an online platform for avid readers, writers, academics, publishers, agents, and anyone else interested in literature by writers from Africa. The series of online discussions held once a month from October has featured Abubakar Adam Ibrahim, Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor, Niq Mhlongo, Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi, Tendai Huchu, Natasha Omokhodion-Kalulu Banda, Ondjaki, Ishmael Beah, and Siphiwe Gloria Ndlovu.
The guest for September 11 will be Rwanda-Born Namibian writer Rémy Ngamije whose debut novel The Eternal Audience of One was recently published by Simon and Schuster in the USA. Cofounder and editor-in-chief of Doek! Literary Magazine, Namibia’s first, his work has appeared in Litro Magazine, AFREADA, The Johannesburg Review of Books, Brainwavez, The Amistad, The Kalahari Review, American Chordata, Azure, Sultan’s Seal, Santa Ana River Review, Columbia Journal, New Contrast, Necessary Fiction, Silver Pinion, and Lolwe. He was shortlisted for the AKO Caine Prize for African Writing in 2020 and 2021 and longlisted for the 2020 Afritondo Short Story Prize. He won the Commonwealth Short Story Prize Africa section this year for his story Granddaughter of the Octopus.
