Being among writers, sitting and talking about writing is one of the most beautiful things ever, I tell you.
Such was the experience at the Bogobiri Creative Writing Workshop when I and nine other participants sat through hours on end, interrupted only by lunch. Reading. Writing. Arguing. Laughing. Having a really good time.
All the exercises we partook of were remarkable. Worthy of mention was one where we were given an excerpt and required to retell it. It was exciting listening to a story being retold in ten different ways, because even though we all knew the end, each story brought along its own peculiarity, complete with twists and turns.
Shout out to everyone who made this possible: Facilitators- Eghosa Imasuen, Igoni Barett; Sponsor- Etisalat; Host- Bogobiri, which was in itself a beautiful place of art and took the experience several notches higher.
Hopefully, I’d be able to get my new friends to guest-post here on my blog, and I can assure you of beautiful content and wonderful story-telling.
