‘I Like Narratives That Take Me on a Quest’ Pede Hollist’s First Draft

Sierra Leonean academic and author of So the Path Does Not Die, Pede Hollist, wants more people to know about the diversity of Sierra Leonean literature: ‘I wish people are aware of the efforts by Sierra Leoneans to write in the country’s national languages, and the financial struggles to support young writers through workshops, retreats, prize-bearing competitions, professional editors, and competitive publication outlets.’
