Just booked my tickets, Zim here I come in Sept :) Will be in Harare and then Bulawayo as I have been invited to attend and give a talk at the 2009 INTWASA Arts Festival. Will also be organising a StoryTime Authors meeting for those in Harare, and then Bulawayo too during the festival with the help of Chris Mlalazi.
