pen world voices, which african voices

PEN will stage an important event in the merry month of May in New York City (US of A). This year the theme is “On Africa “.  

In this article it is argued that writers from North Africa are left out, when the voices coming out of Africa (or On Africa) are mentioned.

I notice that my posts on writers from Northern Africa draw far less visitors than posts on their fellowwriters from south of the Sahara.  Is this a matter of language (French, Arabic) or culture?
