Unoma Azuah: Poetry workshops in Nigeria

I have the pleasure to announce a series of FREE poetry workshops across the country to be facilitated by the Poetry Editor of Sentinel Nigeria Magazine, Unoma Azuah professor of Creative Writing at Lane College, Tennessee, on the “Technique and Critical Appraisal of Poetry.” She will be assisted by Dr. Lindsey Green-Simms of Duke University, who will facilitate on the related topic of “Poetry and Poetics: A Reading of Classics.

Sub-themes of the workshop will include:
• A : Elements of Poetry
• B : Practicing Poetry
• C : Pattern By Eye: Objects
• D : Layering Patterns
• E : Problems of Poetry

The Workshop, made free by our partners and co-hosts, will be held in the following cities:
• Asaba - May 15th
• Lagos - June 5th
• Abuja – {June 12th or 19th: to be confirmed.}
• Kaduna - June 26th

Interested participants should register by sending an email indicating in which towns they would be attending the workshop. Writer’s groups may also inquire about group attendance via email to
nzeifedigbo@yahoo.com {Subject “Attn: Poetry Workshop”}

Following the workshops, Unoma Azuah will edit submitted poetry manuscripts for a one-off assessment fee of N2,000 (per Poetry collection). She will make a selection from these poems for the maiden “Sentinel Nigeria Poetry Digest” - to be published in August 2010.
