the long and short project

No matter what colour your literary system is: you need readers. 

You can have your writers.

You can have your publishing houses.

You can have your bookshops.

But where are the readers?

The Long Story Short – African Literature Goes Digital project will feature celebrities who will read excerpts from material by writers from Africa and those who have left the continent. (Oupa Nkosi, M&G)
