Breaking the Silence: An Anthology of Liberian Literature

Penn State University Altoona

Professor of English, Creative Writing & Literature

My project is to collect, compile, edit, and anthologize the literary works, including poetry, short stories, and photographs of established and emerging Liberian writers in a book, entitled, “Breaking the Silence: An Anthology of Liberian Literature.” My fall semester will include the project of collecting and compiling these literary and artistic works, a project that should take up an entire calendar year, and now with the Corona Virus, probably longer. The anthology will also include my and the works of older generations of Liberian writers, and edited by me.
