How to Spell Naija (in 100 Short Stories)

Spelling Lessons

 

Surprise Surprise.

This morning I will read from my new anthology, How to Spell Naija in 100 Short Stories. It is #AkeFestival time and the June Twelve Cultural Centre, Abeokuta plays venue to the very first public reading, hosted by Molara Wood, who is introducing her own anthology, Indigo as well. If you did not plan for the Ake Festival this year, there’s always next year. In the meantime, watch the space: Naija spelling lessons might soon be coming to a venue close to you.

Fair Trade Warning: this is just the first volume of a two-part series, so despite the boast in the title, when you hold the small, 290 pager, you will only have 50 stories in your hand. Next year I will release the second volume and my 100-piece centenary gift to nation will be complete.

For Fiction at least. There is yet poetry…
