31 DAYS OF POETRY, INTRO to 2016 EDITION


Since year 2011, thirty-one days in each year have been dedicated to reading and celebrating various Poets via EGC Media/blog. The online event has featured most of ‘who-is-who’ in Nigerian Poetry scene. This little drop, in each year, in the vast ocean of opportunities and ways that abound in promotion of one another as Poets has contributed in connecting Poets to one another, discovery of new ones, celebration of older ones, and most importantly given many of us an extra joy in reading beautiful poems.

This year, between 1st September and 1st October, our attention will be more on Poets who are still discovering themselves. At times, some established Poets may be featured, but in all the focus will be on keeping our eyes on the future of poetry in Nigeria.
