A Poetry Reading To Remember!

My first poetry reading-yay!

I’m very happy to say that I had my first poetry reading yesterday, and it was wonderful.

This took place at the Lyght Investments Group book swap event here in Abuja. Lyght Investments decided that as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility, they would equip schools in Abuja’s rural communities with books for their libraries to encourage children to do more reading. I think it’s a wonderful initiative and I was very happy to be part of the event.

The organizers of the event were very kind and supportive to me. It was great reading my poems for an audience, and answering their questions afterwards gave me more insight about my own writing process.

I will put up the poems which I read at the event on Saturday. For now, please enjoy looking at some photos from the event.

Thanks for reading!
