To celebrate its 6th year anniversary, Brittle Paper has organised a 300-word writing contest that focuses on the love for African writing and literary culture.
“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 things right by re-affirming your love—with just 300 words! Feel free to explore all genres and scenarios.”

The contest is open to everyone.
Published and unpublished writers can participate.
There is no restriction as to the nationality as long as you love African literature.
Your work must not exceed 350 word count.
Follow Brittle Paper on twitter @brittlepaper.
