An Evening of Readings: New African Writing II

Hello, everyone. We hope you had a lovely weekend.

If you missed the New African Writing reading last Friday at The Life House, then you missed out on a fun evening. Eight out of the selected fifteen writers were available to read their work. Also, we had five distinguished writers – Tolu Ogunlesi, Jude Dibia, Eghosa Imasuen, Toyin Akinosho and Toni Kan – with us to help critique the stories and offer constructive feedback to the writers. The audience also contributed by sharing their comments and impressions on the stories. Please see photos of the event below.

  1. When will the finalists be picked? Couldn’t come 4 the second reading because of the time. I live at suru-lere and i don’t drive, coming to the life house at that time, to me is quite risky. I hope that in the nearest future, the time will be changed to accommodate people like me.

  2. Whatever happened to this project? Nothing new? No new competition? No finalist? No stories to read on the blog?
