What Happened to Creative Writing in Malawi?

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Malawi, Education, Literature

Steve Sharra discusses [1]the reasons behind the fall of quality of creative writing in Malawi:

Of the many private universities that are mushrooming across the country, very few offer humanities courses where people can study languages and literature, creative writing and literary criticism. The University of Malawi has been operating without a university bookshop for some eighteen years now. Funding problems in the universities mean that even the university libraries are unable to stock new literature.
