Marko Phiri is a Zimbabwean writer/journalist. His short fiction, creative non-fiction and long-form journalism has appeared in the Kalahari Reivew and in 2014, he contributed to Writing Lives – an anthology of short stories published byWeaver Press. Besides journalism and short fiction, Marko’s interests extend to film where he has written numerous short film scripts that border on the surreal but are essentially everyday stories of the ordinary man, woman and child. He is currently researching a documentary on the journey and life of young Malawian men who made long journeys on foot, back in the 50s and 60s – across from Malawi to Zimbabwe.
