Cover art by Danielle Clough

The short story anthology I developed and co-edited, Queer Africa: New and Collected Fiction, won the 2014 Lambda Literary Award for a fiction anthology, the first African book to win a Lammy. Queer Africa 2: New Stories was nominated for a 2017 Lammy. The New Internationalist published Queer Africa: Selected Stories in 2018. With my co-editor, Makhosazana Xaba, I work closely with the writers we select, taking them through a demanding developmental edit to a polished story.
