Mako Muzenda is a Zimbabwean writer. She completed her PhD in Cultural Studies, focusing on media and memory in post-Independence Zimbabwe. Outside of academia, Mako recently published a series, ‘Micro Life’, which explores the hidden world of small plants and insects. She began the project in 2020 by taking photos of her mother’s garden. She also manages a small coffee farm in Zimbabwe’s Eastern Highlands, that doubles as a sanctuary for women who’ve survived domestic abuse.
