    Abstract

    While working in Freetown this summer, I was pleased to meet Mike Butscher, who set up a chapter of PEN, the worldwide association of writers, in Sierra Leone in 2003. Mike and the Sierra Leone PEN committee are endeavouring to promote Sierra Leonean writers and writing and to advance the publishing industry in a country where the majority of people cannot read or write.
