What you need to know:

  • Our young editor started by informing me that they had in fact done some serious edits on the piece, but when they sent them back to the writer, he refused to be edited and wanted his piece to run as it was.
  • I teasingly but very seriously enquired what type of team the editor ran since they were willing to be bullied by writers who submitted to them, whatever their names.
  • I half-hoped he would tell me that perhaps they had got paid, which would justify it in the same way that newspapers and magazines are not responsible for the content of their advertisers.

The last few years on the African literary landscape have been exciting.
