Obinna Udenwe 1

Brittle Paper readers have come to love Obinna’s monthly series. We love the drama of his stories but are also drawn to the conspiratorial tone of his writing style and how it makes us feel a sense of intimacy with his characters.

His flash fiction piece, “Men in Kaftans,” is up for review by readers who can also vote for their favorite stories.

Won’t it be nice for one of our in-house writers to win a literary prize?

So please, show Obinna some love by clicking HERE to read and vote for his 300-word story.

    Obinna Udenwe is a gift to Nigeria. In his Dancing Bird, he used wise words, Idioms and Proverbs like an old professor of literature specialized in poetry. He also gives inspiration and motivation to potential writers. I pray that Nigerians in persons and firms recognise and lift him to go higher across the globe.
