Publishing is an activity that is relatively new in Togo. However, since 1980, publishing activities have become quite common in the country and many books have been published by local editors. Unfortunately the books published in the country are often not known to the public because critics and books reviewers fail to adequately advertise the books. There is furthermore a lack of "legitimating structures" which hampers the growth of the Togolese publishing industry. For example, the state does not offer facilities that can help authors by promoting publishing as a commercial activity. Not surprisingly, very few writers in Togo have earned the fame they deserve.
