Olongo is the orange-cheeked waxbill, small enough to be missed in a scene, but loud enough to be noticed wherever it is perched. The name had stuck since we first suggested it as the cover for our new floor on the Brick House, a collective of writers and journalists.
You are welcome to our launch. What we hope to bring you are creative pieces from the continent of Africa, or work relating to the continent from creative writers, poets, journalists, and artists looking for a way to reach new audiences.
Pitch your writings to us, fiction, poetry, journalism, non-fiction, etc, and we’d be happy to read them. Send to submissions@OlongoAfrica.com
We are excited and can’t wait to show you what we’ve got.
