Cassava Shorts

0 Ratings

Our new short story series will showcase gripping stories by celebrated and emerging authors, which will hook you from the first word. Cassava Shorts showcase the power of the short story to give readers a concentrated shot of high-quality writing, whilst exploring in microcosm timely and important themes.   CRP Publishing Director Bibi Bakare-Yusuf says, “With this new series, we want to celebrate the short story’s potential to reactivate a love of good old-fashioned story telling in pithy form. At a time when so much is competing for our attention, short stories are a quick way to get immense in a world and still feeling satiated. Some of my most explosive and evocative reads have been the short story form. So, I am very excited to introduce this series by some of the best-known and emerging writers from across the African world.”
