brittle-thanks

2016 is just about done, so we are wrapping things up here at Brittle Paper. We enjoyed every minute we spent bringing you updates on the African literary scene, introducing you to new writers, and serenading you with original works of fiction and poetry.

Thank you for being the best community of readers any blogger could ever wish for. Thank you for the tens of thousands of visits to Brittle Paper. Thanks for celebrating our 6th year anniversary with us. Thanks for your praises but also your criticisms. All of it inspires us to do better. To the regulars who visit the site every day, who share our posts on social media, who leave comments, we appreciate your love. To those stoping by for the first time, we hope you come again.

Thanks to the writers/bloggers who volunteered their time when we ran into a bit of a rough patch sometime in the year. Thanks to the African literary community as a whole—writers, critics, publishers. Their extent of their support is incalculable.

We love you all. We really do.

We want to continue giving you high-quality content in 2017. So we’ll be taking some time off to get things ready for the new year.

See you on January 2!

Enjoy the holidays!

    Thanks to you, Ainehi, for keeping me informed about African writers and often giving me content for my own blog about Nigeria and race in America.
    It was great to meet and hear you speak a couple of months ago at Yale. Congrats on your PhD, your blog, and your academic career!
