This exciting anthology of short stories showcases the work of 13 emerging writers from the African continent, finalists in the Center for African Cultural Excellence's Writivism Short Story Competition 2015. Now in its third year, this increasingly popular annual competition attracted over 250 entries from countries as far afield as Botswana, Tanzania, Nigeria and Rwanda, to name but a few. The best of the stories were selected by a panel of judges chaired by Chika Unigwe, and including Mukoma Wa Ngugi, Rachel Zadok, Tendai Huchu and Ainehi Edoro. The anthology is edited by Sumayya Lee and Emmanuel Sigauke. Dip in for a feast of fiction which encompasses realism, science fiction, and even a horror story, in a collection which is guaranteed to impress and entertain. The Center for Cultural Excellence is located in Kampala, Uganda, where the annual Writivism Festival takes place, drawing writers and lovers of literature from all over Africa and beyond.
