Abstract:To reconsider the status of Anglophone Cameroon literary writing a workshop was held at Yaoundé in January 1993. The workshop's aim was to take stock of the corpus and volume of Anglophone Cameroon writing, assess its standing, evaluate and redefine its status and its functions in the present situation. This volume contains the proceedings of the workshop, arranged under the following headings: keynote address (literature in the season of the diaspora), writing and the educational background, towards a definition of Anglophone writing, focus on drama, oral tradition in literature, the role of the press, Anglophone writing and the democratic process (Round Table 1), women's contribution to democratic change in Cameroon (Round Table 2).
