Brittle Paper has launched a writing contest to give you a chance to say just what you love about African literature.
Here is how it works:
Imagine African literature as a romantic partner—boyfriend, girlfriend, sidechick, main squeeze, wife, husband, whatever. It is your 6th year anniversary, but you’ve been going through a rough patch for while now. Things haven’t been as rosy as it once was. You’re determined to put thing right by re-affirming your love—with just 300 words!
The contest is open to everyone: old, youthful, aspiring writer, seasoned writer, African, non-African, etc. If you read and love African literature, take this chance to say why.
