TIPS FOR WRITING GOOD FEEDBACK
The goal of providing feedback is;
1. to invite another reader into the world of beauty you have seen in a work
2. to provide a very brief summary of what you read.
3. to give your interpretation/perspective of what has been written.
4. to provide suggestions for improvement.
We encourage that your comment meets at least 2 of these goals.
The SprinNG team will evaluate the comments and select the winner of the book at the end of the month.
Note: Comment on the poems, book reviews, articles, interviews and guest posts.

What part of your biography do you think is the most crucial detail in introducing yourself and why?
At this point, it’s probably that second to last line: “Mona lives in Lagos, Nigeria, with her husband and three children.” Since becoming a mother nearly 17 years ago, raising my children has been my primary focus and greatest source of joy. I’m grateful to my husband for always supporting me in my mothering, writing and everything else.
I am a Soldier
June 1999, I wore a crown of death and life.
It was like yesterday I joined them
In a jungle of war. I turned back to see my blood -- my sister;
I abandoned the prostrations, my tradition, and
My arms embraced salutes -- a soldier I am. I remember
How you soaked your eyes between life and death; how
