Binda - the Gambian Writer's Collective
We recently started a Gambian writer's collective called Binda (Wolof for "to write"). It is open to both writers living in the country, and Gambian writers abroad (writer here meaning both the published and doing quite well for themselves types, as well as the aspiring, "will I ever be good enough" types), as well as non-writers generally interested in Gambian literature. We don't have a website yet, but we have an online discussion forum which you can join by going to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/bindagambia/, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you join, you can post your work online to have it critiqued, and interact with other members online.
