I’ll be on the Judging Panel of the Award Winning Day of #ONKOWE ‘TALK THE WORD’ POETRY CONTEST for high school students in Lagos, next week the 13th of November.
The literary event is organized by Ink Repertoire Blog Team of Lagos-based spoken word poet Damilola Olaniyi [See the Ink Repertoire Blogazine here.] This year’s edition of the Onkowe literary event, I was informed, is a new focus at poetry and spoken word performance, and to groom and encourage the poetic engagements among high school students.
The event will be holding by 11:00AM and at STUDIO CITY HALL, 9/11 Kudirat Abiola Way, Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos.
I’m, of course, inviting you along – and let’s together listen and attend to the interesting emergent voices of the Generation Next. It’ll be fun to, isn’t it? And even when we do our professional part. So come along, too. Like to see – meet, you there!
