The Power of Authors 2021
29th April 2021 @ 9:00 am - 30th April 2021 @ 1:00 pm
Join us as we celebrate the Power of Authors
The Academic and Non-Fiction Authors’ Association of South Africa (ANFASA) is hosting a two-day virtual international conference, to explore and debate the role and status of authors in society.
Knowledge production and the voice of the author has never been more important. Authors need to continue writing as they observe and reflect on humanity and the ways of the world. They are the ones we will rely on to record and narrate the stories for generations to come.
But In South Africa, imported knowledge far outstrips what we produce ourselves. We need more authors writing, especially more scholars writing and producing African scholarship.
Who should attend?
This high-level conference aims to attract published authors and thought leaders able to question and reflect on how authors can influence the course of events in the world.
ANFASA is hoping for, and expecting a strong presence from the academy, from both established and emergent scholarly authors.
