Kimbilio means “safe haven” in Swahili. We are a community of writers and scholars committed to developing, empowering and sustaining fiction writers from the African diaspora and their stories. Projects include readings, presentations at professional conferences, social media networking, and an annual summer retreat for fiction writers who are members of the Kimbilio community. Kimbilio is a project of the English Department and of Dedman College of SMU founded and directed by David Haynes.
