My First Column at New Internationalist

I'm back home and will blog about all of the wonderful things that happened to me while away- but first I need to recover a bit. In the meanwhile, I thought I'd introduce you to my new column.

One of the many wonderful things that happened as a result of my Caine Prize shortlisting last year was meeting the folks at New Internationalist. I'd had some interaction with them because they're the publishers of One World, an anthology I was a part of. They were at the awards dinner and spoke to me about maybe writing a column for them. I thought I could give it a try and now it is a reality.

The column is called Letter from Botswana, and the first instalment is called "ET is Not An Alien".
I'd love to hear what you think about it.

Lovely column Laurie - interesting to read about your arrival in Africa - I was surprised to learn that you'd arrived here from the USA ... I hope to read many more of your columns ...

Thrilled about your column Lauri. I am so inspired and impressed. Glad you are still in Botswana all those years later!
