Back to work.
Here is one of the writers I met at Litcamp –Ola Awonubi.
Ola lives and works in London as a secretary.
She attended the Centreprise Literature Development Project in Hackney, London for three years joining the intermediate then Advanced writing classes. One of her tutors was the indomitable and charming Jacob Ross, who I was lucky enough to have as my tutor at an Arvon week last year, together with Maggie Gee.
Last December Ola came first in the Words of Colour writing competition with her short story The Pink House and has had articles and short stories published in African-writing.com and in the Secret Attic Nov 07 anthology.
Ola is currently working on a collection of short stories based on the African experience, and a novel – a cross cultural romance that explores the social, political, cultural and historical ties that bind and divide the cultures.
Her winning story THE PINK HOUSE is HERE
