Female Malawian Writers and their books

Malawi’s history has been beautifully and meticulously expressed through the country’s talented creatives who have helped to shape the country’s economic, social and political systems. A field that was previously dominated by men is now seeing an increase in the number of female creatives, some of whom have managed to get their creative work published. The brilliant writers are using their craft to not only provide stories but to promote the rights of women

The section that follows recognizes the country’s female writers who have come with all forms of storytelling, whether in the form of novels, poetry or spoken word.
