Short Story Day Africa

Publisher info

Short Story Day Africa aims to highlight the outstanding short fiction African writers have to offer the world. We encourage everyone of all ages and all genders to do something in honour of the short story. This could be absolutely anything, from running a creative workshop or class, a competition, making a short film or film adaptation of a short story, organising a spoken word night, a reading, an author appearance, a literary salon, or simply picking up a short story and enjoying it, for maybe the first or the hundreth time.

Whatever it is you're doing, we want to hear about it! Send us details of your event to, a link to your website (if applicable), and any images you have, and we'll put it on the brand new Short Story Day Africa website, where you can also find short stories to read and enjoy, short story recommendations, competitions, giveaways and more.
