 * MISSION STATEMENT  *
Crossing Borders promoted cross-cultural developmental dialogue between emergent African writers working in English and experienced UK-based mentors. This was facilitated through dedicated online information technology facilities, which will open up shared creative and cultural space. Our emphasis was on building a new international community of writers, on new work for a new world.
