Malawian website on literature begins on good note:

There has been a steady rise in the number of people visiting, a website whose purpose is to expose Malawian writers to the international world, founder Aubrey Chinguwo has disclosed.

Chinguwo: Impressed

Launched last month, the website is now getting over a thousand visitors a week and has so far published eight works in the genres of short fiction and poetry.

Chinguwo, an award winning creative fiction writer and a career information systems specialist, told Nyasa Times that he “is impressed” with the feedback so far.

“Feedback is very integral to every artist, including the writer. The website has made the writer-reader interaction easy. Through the comment box, the writer is able to get instant feedback from the reader about his or her work. And, that is priceless in the life of every writer,” said Chinguwo.

He said the motivation to come up with the website was after noticing that Malawi was lagging behind in online publishing.

“Then the idea of a website came over me. I created it, but I want every writer in Malawi to take it as his or her own. That way we will all strive to make it the best in this part of the region or, in fact, the whole world,” he said.

Chinguwo, 24, has published more than 60 short stories locally and internationally. He is one of the authors featured in the Imagine Africa 500 anthology edited by world acclaimed Kenyan editor and twice Caine Prize for African Writing nominee Billy Kahora.
