We were author of September, 2022 at FEMRITE Writers & Readers’ Club

Thank you FEMRITE, for promoting our poetry anthology, A CHILD IS A SEEDLING by hosting us on your platform,Author of the Month of September 2022. It went so well, in my view, with quite an engaging talk.

It was wonderful to see many young people, taking interest and craving to learn and aspire to be writers. FEMRITE’s Readers & Writers Club is certainly one place to start. We were delighted that one contributor poet, Masolo Terry was present. 

Thank you, Betty, the editor and Alex, the illustrator for ably speaking for the anthology. Hopefully many in the audience found something to take home from the conversation, which was in capable hands of Kayagi Peter, the moderator.

Thank you, to the great audience that turned up for the session. I want to thank my friends online and my workmates all over Africa too for their moral support! 

Asante sana nyote!
