"Separated by official languages, geography and strategic regions, our continent is unknown to itself today more than ever. In the field of literature, we know little of what our neighbors are debating and publishing. Even worse, what we know comes from Europe, through old and untouchable colonial circuits. African literary festivals can be a way to break this isolation and reciprocal ignorance.

For all these reasons, the Macondo Literary Festival deserves to be hailed. I wish you every success for this event. This success will make us bigger and closer, African and non-African writers and readers."

Mia Couto, Mozambiquan writer
