NAIJA BLOGGERS- THE BOOK
This is a call to all Nigerian bloggers worldwide to become a part of An anthology of the greatest works of Nigerian Bloggers-
A book called Naija bloggers Vol 1.
Nigerian Bloggers around the globe are requested to send in their stories or recommend great posts for the publication of a physical anthology, the first of its kind by any group of bloggers on any continent.
The categories are anecdotes, short stories, poetry, prose, drama and essays but there is room for as many sub-categories as are sent in as the book will also serve as a platform where artistes can showcase architectural/interior/exterior designs, photography, paintings as well as fashion and textile designs. Submissions are therefore welcome on any topic whether covered here or not.
There is only one condition- All submissions must have been blogged on or before Monday the 14th of May 2007.
Bloggers may submit up to 5 entries on any topic or issue but no blogger may have more than 3 works published. The Copyright of Articles remains the possession of the original writers.
The profiles of writers will be added to the anthology (those who wish to remain anonymous may do so, however)
Royalties will be discussed with selected contributors before publication.
The intention is to publish worldwide in stages, first stage being Nigeria and to make the book available all over the world.
Talks are on with publishers in Nigeria including Spectrum, Farafina and Khalam Editions.
It is expected that a compilation of the best of Nigerian minds on the internet will make fantastic reading, show a new and much needed side of Nigerians to the entire world, as well as give access to those who are not internet-inclined.
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org not later than Friday, June the 15th 2007 stating date of blogging and blogname/address.
Please note that submission does not automatically guarantee the publication of all or any of the works. The final selection will be made by respected Nigerian writers.
P.S: For whatever it's worth, I am part of this project, but really Wole Oguntokun is the BRAIN - and the PUSH!! I am grateful to him for taking it seriously.
