The Abuja Writers Forum continues with its Guest Writer Session on 24th November, 2018 at the Fountain Hall of Nanet Suites from 4pm to 7pm. The guests in focus for November are Madeline Agoba and Chiemezie Onqubalili. The session, which is open to the public, will feature entertaining readings, live music and a raffle-draw for books, amongst other fun literary stuff.
Madeline will be reading from her debut publication, Ahmadu Bello, which is mash of fiction and fact based on the life of the Saurdana Sokoto and first Premier of the Northern Region of Nigeria, Sir Ahmadu Bello. I had spoken to her some time back and was impressed with what she had in mind on the project. We were talking to see if we could agree on terms for publishing the work but that did not work out. From what I believe, the book is researched, and a fusion of passion by someone who loves stories plus telling them. Madeline wants to ensure that history is not lost and that somehow people will embrace them through the medium of entertaining reenactment of the past. If you want to know more about the book or just want to have fun, you should come around to the AWF GWS.
Chiemezie Onwubalili, on the other hand, is an economist and prominent member of the Abuja Writers Forum. He started writing as a means of release after some personal crises. After some adventures including dumping a financial blog where he would advice on incredible investments while he barely had anything in his account, Chiemezie decided to go the route of simply telling tales. Sometimes, tall tales. He also resorted to building websites and building people, through the art of fiction. No cause for hypocrisy there, right? 🙂 He will be reading selected works of his at the AWF GWS November 2018.
The Abuja Writers’ Forum has remained consistent with their activities which include literary contests, readings, the Guest Writer Session, and so much more. The Abuja Writers’ Forum ‘Guest Writer Session’ takes place every last Saturday of the month at Nanet Suites from 4pm to 7pm. It is open to the general public and features sessions with readings from guest authors; music; questions and answers with the authors; and a raffle draw for fantastic prizes. The Forum also has critique sessions every Sunday except for the last Saturday of the week.
