The Short Story is Dead, Long Live the Short Story! Volume 2 (RELEASED)

"The Short Story is Dead, Long Live the Short Story!" includes my short story "Water".

“A story that gave me that “aah” moment was Stephen Embleton’s Water. Water is a beautifully crafted story that explores grief. Without really mentioning death (I think it’s only brought up once), Water manages to pull us into what looks like a mundane morning routine but is, in fact, weighed heavily by the loss of a lifelong companion. This story is so well crafted that I return to it time and again. I deserves a special mention for its ability to quietly draw you into the world of its main character.” - Introduction by Duduzile Zamantungwa Mabaso (Black Letter Media)

Enkare Review



The fact that an African based literary journal can start up in 2017 is both encouraging for African literature and encouraging to African writers. Having outlets for writers in Africa has never been more important as readers gain more access to written works than ever before. No longer relying on Western media and content creators gives Africans (at home and abroad) access to their own stories.
