“Transcending the Flame” is a collection of works of fiction and nonfiction by eighteen writers. It is dedicated to
Joel Benjamin Ntwatwa, who is also one of the contributors who were part of the Writivism Online Mentoring Program.
In the Introduction, editor, Emmanuel Sigauke writes, “The stories in this anthology, for instance, cover eclectic themes and genres—everything from speculative fiction, fantasy, science fiction, literary, romance, horror and, of course, innovative nonfiction. Through these stories, one also sees that the writers are witnesses of their times: the influence of social media is evident; redefining techniques such as dialogue, plot, point of view, and others. Some of the dialogue comes with WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger messages as forms of conversation on the page, capturing the new realism of our times.”
