ATTEND AWF’S ABUJA LITERARY FESTIVAL 2018 (JUNE 28-30 2018) AT NICON LUXURY HOTEL ABUJA

Abuja comes alive with the Abuja Writers Forum’s Abuja Literary Festival scheduled for June 28-30 2018 at NICON Luxury Hotel, Abuja. Themed ‘Telling Our Stories in the 21st Century’, the festival will feature book chats, exhibitions, film shows, performances, master classes and other literary events to spice up the artmosphere.

This is the second edition of the festival which premiered in November 2008 and will boast an array of amazing creatives like SEVHAGE’s very own Professor Dul Johnson (yaaaaay!), Professor Zaynab Alkali, Professor Idris Amali, superstar director Ishaya Bako, the talented Carlton Lindsay Barrett (who is also the father of A. Igoni Barrett), ANA Legal Adviser and multiple award winning dramatist Isaac Attah Ogezi, my person Theresa Ameh (aka Auntie Talatu), the beautifully talented Sifa Asani Gowon, novel pro/legal star Edify Yakusak, the illustrator Mustapha Bulama, of course Dr. Emman Shehu (AWF President), Mike Ekunno…to mention a few. Okay, to mention a few others that I know: Domitila Sa’adatu Modesti, Dr. Al-Bishak, Dr. Onyebuchi James Ile, Blossom Ozurumba, the poetic trio of Olumide Olaniyan, Amina Aboje, Sodiq Alabi, Chido Onumah, Jamaine Abidogun, Ibrahim Sheme (famed journalist), Wole Coker (ED Programmes of NTA).

I will probably be moderating one of the sessions. You would want to catch me there. 🙂
