Farafina Set To Publish Me At Last!

Actually, it’s not just me o. It’s the entire Farafina Trust Creative Writing Workshop class of 2013. You know us, right? We’re the ones you can see here . . .far1And here . . .


And here.far3

It turns out that after three weeks of learning under the savvy tutelage of four literary greats, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Binyavanga Wainaina, Eghosa Imaseun and Aslak Sira Myhre, we all dispersed, went home and got busy, turning out a collection of stories that Farafina intends to turn into a publication.

The anthology is titled A Handful Of Dust. And the plans to publish it have been completed by Farafina Trust in collaboration with Kachifo Limited, publishers of the Farafina imprint. The book will be released on the Kindle and other major e-book outlets, including Okada Books, in the coming weeks and a print edition should come soon after.

I’m so psyched about this! 😀
