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.

What part of your biography do you think is the most crucial detail in introducing yourself and why?
The part that states that I’m a writer. Writing is the gift I’m most fond of and the way I see and think of myself. It’s also a teeny-weeny-itsy-bitsy in-your-face statement to those who said to me that leaving legal practice was a grave mistake I’d regret.
What better way exists, weigh on red-hot and hardly gender issues discussed in a contemporary society, than to write a compelling and intriguing novel?
Bisi Adjapon exploited the power of words to air and breathed life upon these issues. This is no doubt, a product of sheer ingenuity, certifying her as a thoughtful and a relevant contemporary writer. And based on her years of experience as a writer, language instructor, and linguist, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the work which cements her status as an author is brilliant.
An Excerpt from an Upcoming Collection titled Forget It by Oyindamola Shoola
Muyiwa Adesokun is a storyteller that has immersed himself in the art of telling stories through film, photography, poetry and design. When he is not disturbing friends with good music, he is learning Spanish. He currently lives in the colourful city of Lagos, Nigeria.
Last year at the Senior Secondary School I attended in Nigeria named Nickdel, I was awarded the position of the Library prefect. During my tenure – I ensured that the library bookshelves were upgraded, and some more books were added. Knowing who and what I know now, of literature, particularly Nigerian creative writing, if I were to go back to be that Library prefect, I would add books by authors like Muyiwa Adesokun. At the time of being a Library prefect in 2013, I wasn’t a book lover, and the only books I read were textbooks out of obligation. However, I had started writing but of unfamiliar things only in the shadow of books, poetry, fiction, and non-fiction by outdated non-Nigerian authors. Even the ones by Nigerian or African authors we read didn’t fulfil the meaning our young hearts needed. It gave us words, conjured up, poetic devices, forced interpretation out of us for marks but failed to be simple enough to be enjoyed and meaningful.
Here is the first poem in Muyiwa Adesokun’s The Taxi Driver and other poems:
