The African Writers Trust Has Launched Online Bookshop Tubaze

The African Writers Trust has recently introduced its online bookstore, Tubaze African Books, which is now up and running.

Founded in 2009, the African Writers Trust serves as a platform to connect African writers with publishing professionals residing both within the diaspora and on the continent. Its objective is to facilitate collaboration and knowledge exchange between these two groups.

Goretti Kyomuhendo, a Ugandan novelist and the founding director of the African Writers Trust, has authored several novels, including The First Daughter (1996), Secrets No More (1999), which received the Uganda National Literary Award for Best Novel in the same year, and Waiting (2007), later translated into Spanish in 2022. Additionally, her novella, Whispers from Vera, was published in 2012, and in 2014, she released the Essential Handbook for African Creative Writers.

Tubaze African Books aims to make books by African writers published outside the continent readily accessible and affordable to African audiences. It encourages readers to explore the diverse works of African authors from various regions and the diaspora. According to Kyomuhendo, the establishment of this bookshop has been long-awaited, and its realization is a significant milestone.
