Arts journalist and culture activist Andrea Enisuoh interviewed me for her Artbeat page in New Nation newspaper. The piece appeared in last week's edition of the paper. The interview was looking ahead to the Word From Africa event, which held at the British Museum last Saturday. Enisuoh and I discussed my short story, Written in Stone (an excerpt of which I read on Saturday); and we touched on this blog also. Thanks to Andrea. The interview page is reproduced here.

I am a writer and arts journalist now based in Lagos. This is a blog on arts and culture. The focus is on Nigeria's art scene, especially her 'Word's Body' - the writers. As and when, we'll also touch on wider African writing, as well as international literature. In short, a saturation of the arts.
