Pretty much sums up the short history of PNG Literature. Without writers, a country lacks soul. The truth is, we don't have enough writers compared to athletes or musicians. Most literature major students who graduate from universities end up in news/media jobs or teaching. One can't earn a living through writing and hence, the art of writing is slowly dying out. It's time the relevant government agencies do something to rekindle the literary flames in PNG.

Hi Phil, Your brief and penetrating overview of the literary landscape of this nation is enlightening yet worrying, since the powers that be are indifferent to this situation.

But we the PNG writers need to take up this challenge and move on and persist in writing, because some day, a new dawn will break when PNG literary works will take a leap.
