ABOUT

What this page represents

As part of the larger vision of creating a melting point and an active hub for creative writers in Nigeria, this blog will feature a good number of my friends, colleagues, mentors and others who sign-up for it, affording them the unique platform to share their own stories and knowledge.

We will co-share this platform and get more people to read contents that are authentic and self-styled to appeal especially to young ones  who are in dire need of guidance and direction. This is not leaving the older ones who may re-awaken the burning desire to start writing and sharing again. 

The stories and content that would be published here will come in a variety of styles and cover a range of topics, from life experiences, to lessons from mistakes made,travel features about a specific trip, to a review of a restaurant, to life as a single mum, divorce and all sorts – the possibilities are endless.

It is my firm believe that we all have a story to share and for a good course we will express ourselves without inhibition.

If you are convinced that your writing style and stories will appeal to anyone anywhere, please join the feature writers and lets create a story together.

Welcome aboard.
