Dela Gwala was born in 1990, Johannesburg, and is a full-time feminist, activist writer, reluctant spiritualist and hard truths enthusiast. She is currently completing an MA in Creative Writing at the University of Cape Town. She grew up in a boring suburban wasteland called Centurion and moved to Cape Town to get away from it and pursue higher education. Dela writes about healing, memory, trauma, spirituality and social justice. She tries to “live the questions” by writing her way through them. She believes that we need to dig through our personal narratives in order to make meaning of this weird experience called “life”. Contributing author to the Life Righting Collective’s This is how it is anthology.
