Authors in Africa (AiA) created a forum on a very important subject that all authors are a part of – PUBLISHING. I was asked to participate in the discussion as it is a crucial issue, especially in Africa.
But does traditional publishing still have a special place in this field? Is an author that is ´traditionally published´ a notch higher than the ´self-published´ author? Is one system of publishing here to replace the other or can they co-exist?
AiA asked these questions to many authors, mostly from Africa. Their responses? Together with authors from all over Africa, we discussed the subject in depth.
