Santilla Chingaipe: ‘The strongest work comes from development'
Santilla Chingaipe on the importance of time for development in producing a major work.
'Any initiative that supports early career writers is a wonderful thing. I think being able to not just allocate resources, but time as well, to help people develop their work is a good thing. There's not a lot of that going around and I think the strongest work comes from actually taking the time to work through what the story needs and what the story's trying to say.
'And I think it's just amazing that there's an initiative that's actually doing that and it's, you know, focusing on people who are at the beginnings of their career and want to have some level of longevity.'
