On 30 September 2009 Kontax – the m-novel created for the Shuttleworth Foundation’s m4Lit project – launches in South Africa, making world history as the first of its kind to be offered in both English and isiXhosa.
Kontax, a teen novel written by award-winning mobilist Sam Wilson, and translated into isiXhosa by Nkululelo Mabandla, about the adventures of a group of teenage graffiti writers, will unfold chapter by chapter over 21 days from 30 September.
Please join us for the official launch!

Steve Vosloo, m4Lit project leader and 21st Century Learning Fellow for the Shuttleworth Foundation, and the writer of Kontax, Sam Wilson of Clockwork Orange, will both be chatting about the fascinating world of the m-novel and the participatory reading culture of 21st century teens.
