ITCH is delighted to welcome its second e-intern, Karen Martin to the fold, who is taking over from the wonderful Vuyo Seripe, who excelled at networking ITCH with writers and literary collectives across the African continent and diaspora.
Karen Martin is an emerging, recently published writer of short fiction. She is a professional editor and copy editor. She has also initiated and developed several books for Gay and Lesbian Memory in Action, the pioneering South African LGBTI archives. In 2010, she is driving and editing the archives' anthology of new queer African short fiction. She lives in the countryside outside Johannesburg.
She will be contributing her considerable talents to helping to make ITCH a better place for contributors, and to raise our profile among the literary community. For a taste of her writing, read this.
