About the South African Literary Awards
Founded by the wRite associates, in partnership with the National Department of Arts and Culture in 2005, the main aim of the South African Literary Awards is to pay tribute to South African writers who have distinguished themselves as ground-breaking producers and creators of literature, while it celebrates literary excellence in the depiction and sharing of South Africa’s histories, value systems and philosophies and art as inscribed and preserved in all the languages of South Africa, particularly the official languages.
About the Conference
Founded by the wRite associates, the Africa Century International African Writers Conference – a legacy project of the South African Literary Awards – was inaugurated in Mangaung, Free State Province, in 2012 in partnership with the University of Free State. It is set to become a Mecca of who is who of the African literati, the Diaspora and the entire globe where the celebration of African letters occupies centre stage.
