The list of participants for this year’s Farafina Creative Writing Workshop was released last week and Brittle Paper is delighted to share that two of our very own writers, Nneoma Ike-Njoku and Nnamdi Anyadu made it!

Brittle Paper is a growing, supportive community for writers. Once you publish your work with us, you become family. We stand by you and are always excited to cheer you on and share your successes.

Nneoma Ike-Njoku is a writer and free-lance editor whose flash-fiction story “Daddy Lagos” we published here. Nnamdi Anyadu’s flash fiction story was published here back in 2014. How exciting is it to see the growth of these writers in their respective creative journeys?!

The Farafina workshop is organized annually in Lagos by the highly accomplished Chimamanda Adichie. It gives participants an opportunity to develop their craft through various reading and writing assignments as well as a chance  to be in a community with other writers.

Farafina alums have gone on to win prestigious writing awards, sign books deals and get published. There are typically about a thousand applications to the workshop each year, and applicants are assessed based only on the strength of their written work.

Congratulations to Nneoma and Nnamdi. We look forward to more spectacular achievements from them in the future.
