Week 37

Welcome to another great week readers.

We start with The Wizard, another charming poem from Michael Silton. We also feature two fresh and beautiful paintings by Rasaq Arinla, Legend and Gossip.

As promised, we have also published the second part of Bruce Silton’s short story, The White Place, which is a personal favourite of mine. The concluding part will be published next week – the story is so sweet, I really wish it would continue indefinitely.

And finally for this week, we have a great interview with Professor Nwando Achebe, author of the award-winning book, The Female King of Colonial Nigeria: Ahebi Ugbabe. Professor Achebe was appointed a full professor at Michigan State University at the age of 39.

You are not only going to love the interview, you’ll love everything else we have on offer for this week.



Interview with Kaine Agary

Happy new week readers. This week’s  interview is with Kaine Agary. Ms.  Agary is the author of the award-winning novel, Yellow Yellow, which won the 2008 Nigeria Prize for Literature.

Watch out for more paintings and poems, this week as well as next week’s interview with Gbenro Adegbola, one of Nigeria’s most accomplished publishers.
