Fellow Adventurers who live in Ghana, there is a wonderful writers symposium going on in Accra right now (and up to the 19th of May) organised by the Organisation of Women Writers of African Descent (OWWA) and our very own Mbaasem founded by the legendary Ama Ata Aidoo, and run by one of my fav people Kinna Likimani
On Saturday, 18th May I will be speaking on a panel about ‘Writing Sexuality’ alongside amazing writers and poets including Lola Shoneyin (I recently read and loved ‘The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives), Samiya Bashir, Virginia Phiri and Anita Cobbinah. Our panel will be moderated by Kuukua Dzigbordi Yomekpe . Venue is College of Surgeons and Physicians which is near the Ridge Roundabout, and my session starts at 2pm.
If you’re a lover of words I will encourage you to drop everything you are doing now and head to #YariYari straightaway. Day 1 of the symposium was inspiring with the opening plenary keynote address made by the legendary Angela Davies.
Come find me and say hello if you come. It was lovely to meet Jamez Bondina yesterday.
