Despite a shared history, Cameroon and Nigeria rarely engage in projects of shared literary benefit. The Literary Exchange Project, launched with the support of the Goethe-Instituts in Cameroon and Nigeria, and in partnership with Bakwa Magazine and Saraba Magazine was a direct response to this. Limbe to Lagos: Nonfiction from Cameroon and Nigeria is the fruit of a series of workshops and mentorships in Cameroon and Nigeria.
This book is a collection of narrative nonfiction from writers whose foray into the landscape of the mind is a compelling signpost to formidable writing. Here are stories that are true not only as fact but as windows that open into our contemporary African existence.
New writing by Adams Adeosun, Afope Ojo, Caleb Ajinomoh, Godwin Luba, Howard M-B Maximus, Lucia Edafioka, Nkiacha Atemnkeng, Raoul Djimeli, Sada Malumfashi and Socrates Mbamalu.
