The aim of this article is to analyze literary publishing in French by African publishing houses over the last 10 years or so, with special attentions to trends, strengths and weaknesses. In order to do so, the article is divided in two sections. In the first section, the field of study will be contextualized by existing studies and reports, and give a more general context, by looking at publishing generally in Africa (and not only in French). The evolving space occupied by Francophone African literature in a global environment will be touched upon. The second section is based on a questionnaire, sent to Francophone African publishing houses. Besides being an analysis of the results, the article aims to look at the limits of the study, which as a matter of fact expose to the problems facing publishing in Africa.
