The term ‘struggling writer’ is not just a cliché; writers truly need every help they can get. In light of this, we’re pleased to announce that the African Literary website, Brittle Paper is giving away $100 to the most creative writer that enters this contest.

What do you have to do?

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. 

Entry closes on the 15th of July. The top 5 entries will be announced on the 18th of July and readers will get to vote for their favourite story.
