The Centre for Creative Writing and Oral Culture (CCWOC) is pleased to announce its fall 2010 writer/storyteller-in-residence, IGNATIUS MABASA.

Ignatius Mabasa is an award-winning novelist, children’s writer and dub poet from Harare, Zimbabwe.  Inspired by his grandmother, he is also a storyteller who began telling stories before he could write and has since shared them with audiences from Harare to San Francisco.  An accomplished mentor for budding writers and storytellers, a champion of the Shona language and a lay preacher at his local church, Ignatius is the Deputy Director of the British Council in Zimbabwe.
