Forums » Misc » Heinrich Böll Foundation searchs contact to Black African Writers

The former house of Nobel-Peace-Prize-Laureat Heinrich Böll is now a working place for writers, who are persecuted in their own state.
I read in a newspaper from last week, that there is yet no contact to black african writers, who need support.
As Karin Clark from the foundation says, it is difficult to get the status of a refugee for these persecuted writers in Africa, because there is no literary business scene, what makes it easier to potentates to surpress the not wanted literature.
So this might be something for The Elders, to get in contact between the Heinrich Böll Haus in Langenfeld and Writers from Africa, who might be interested.
