Zachariah Rapola

Zachariah Rapola is an award-winning South African writer and filmmaker whose short stories have been published in The Boston Review, Discovering Home, and Tribune. He is a poet and author who focuses on magical realism and oral history, as he is heavily influenced by the (oral) folk-tale traditions in Africa. This lends his works a speakerly quality that makes them ideal for adaptation. He is also the co-editor of the South African poetry anthology, The Passport That Does Not Pass Ports: African Literature of Travel in the Twenty-First Century.
