Media coverage in Daily Trust and Nigerian Tribune
Meet women like Razinat Mohammed in Maiduguri, Safiya Ismaila in Abuja, and Tope Olaifa in Ibadan, writers who also work as scholars in Nigerian universities. Or Salamatu Sule, the entrepreneurial young writer who is establishing herself as the country's first literary agent. Not to mention Lizi Ashimole who loves folktales, Cecilia Kato who gives a voice to Kagoro and Gertrude Uzoh who self-published her first novel. These are some of the women featured in my research.
These are some of the books that I received as gifts by the authors during fieldwork in 2016. Published novels, poems, children's books and plays. Dealing with a variety of pertinent topics, from painful rituals and stigmatized disease, to polygamy, love and relationships, as well as tales for children.
