Prominent Writers Recommend Upstarts on Connu

Eugene Boudin had Claude Monet. Susan B. Anthony had Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Dr. Dre had Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar (he’s good at meeting people).

The Sensei-grasshopper relationship can be a powerful thing. And with Connu, you can witness the best writers in the world showing off their protégés.

Connu is a longform reading app dedicated to discovering the best under-the-radar writers out there. Every week, four prominent writers choose individual stories by their favorite young fledglings.

Stories, like Jordan Bray’s “Love,” or Kate Axelrod’s “How to Get Along Without Me” are presented online or in Connu’s iPhone app for free after registration.

Connu is great on the go, too. Stories can be downloaded for offline reading, and every story comes with a prerecorded live reading from Connu.

Who knows – you might find literature’s next Eminem (you get what we mean).
