Call For Submission | This Is Nigeria Anthology

this is nigeria anthology

The fact is, writing, deserves much more accolade than it receives. But this is not the time to place blames. This is the moment when we need to echo our voices together into a thunderstorm and break the world into syllables where stronger, healthier and better words can be coined. And this is what we’re doing. Right here! Right now!

‘This is Nigeria’ is our own way of telling the world we’re not blind even when our voices seem subdued. Our portrait of showing the corrupt leaders, though we are down, we are not out. This is our chance of ringing it to their ears that we’re are not part of the ruin process, we clamour for a reverse engineering, where all things fall into place, so that one day, we would sit back into our couch & tell our children how we fought in making the world they live in a better place. Nigeria is our own world.

The anthology welcomes Poetry, Prose, Photography, Essay and Artwork. We welcome you, with all of your bliss and pain. The colour is neither white nor black, it’s grey.
