The African Literary Evening is an evening put together by Tolulope Popoola, Publisher and Chief Executive Officer, Accomplish Press and my self. Need less to say, it is our first event together and I urge you to get your Tickets here whilst they are only £5.
Why are doing this? Primarily because there is a need to bring together African authors to celebrate our successes and to talk about our challenges. This is how Tolu puts it.
“Dedicated to showcasing the best of established and emerging talented African writers in the UK”
Accomplish Press in conjunction with Femy and Remy Ltd and Nigerian Writers, presents an evening of reading, conversation and inspiration with the best of new generation African Writers. Please join us as we enjoy an interesting mixture of literature, poetry and spoken word performances, as well as a panel to discuss issues relevant to writers in the UK.
Featuring: Guest Speakers on the Panel (African writers both published and unpublished, reviewers, journalists and book bloggers).
And many more.
Is it possible to make a living as a full-time writer?
The future of publishing in the UK: is it traditional publishing, self-publishing and collaborative publishing or hybrid publishing?
Beyond print; moving with the digital revolution: ebooks, podcasts, audio books and short films
Who is our audience? Our community or beyond?
Genres: moving beyond expectations placed on African writing
Hosted by: David G. Balogun
