Students with Marita Banda

Photograph of students from the PEN club of Munali Secondary School representing their school at an interschool essay writing competition ceremony held at Lusaka Civic Centre in Lusaka (most probably in 2017). This event took place as part of a PEN report titled Culture’s Oxygen, which set out to examine the conditions for minority language creative writing industries in Kenya, Haiti, Serbia and Nigeria. Marita Banda, a poet in the Tumbuka language and project co-ordinator of the Zambian Centre’s Civil Society Project, can be seen standing at the end on the left. Banda runs workshops in schools promoting creative writing in indigenous languages.
