About Us

Literandra is a non-profit digital platform that celebrates and showcases literary art forms that emanate from the African continent.

Alongside the content that we make available for consumption on our Website and Social networks, we work alongside a number of literary institutions – on the African continent and beyond – to promote African writers, and support local literary initiatives.

Our mission is to get as many people as possible across the world to read and enjoy the broad variety of writing that constitutes African literature. As such, we are committed to supporting the next generation of African writers, especially those who are based on the African continent, by giving them a platform to showcase their work, and recommending them to our industry contacts for more opportunities.

It is our belief that in supporting the next generation of African writers, we are helping to safeguard the future of African writing, and this we do wholeheartedly, for the love of African literature.
