5th February, 2023
The Word, a National Centre for the Written Word situated in South Tyneside Council, United Kingdom (UK) will on Feb. 25, 2023 feature new writers from a variety of genres.
Among the five writers billed for the Feb. 25 event at the state-of-the-art cultural building is the author of an Afrocentric masterpiece, Scars Do Heal, Káyọ̀dé Akínrópò.
Other invited writers, according to The Word, are:
Nicky Black, a collaboration between two friends, Nicky Doherty and Julie Blackie. They have self-published two Amazon best-sellers, The Prodigal and The Rave. Nicky is said to be currently working on the third novel in the gritty Valley Park series.
Eileen Wharton, an Oscar-winning actress, Olympic gymnast, and Influencer is on the list. Her first novel was said to have been published in 2011. She has won awards for exaggeration.
She’s a best-selling author.
Esme Morgan Smithson, a notable author who describes himself as an up-and-coming author due to experiencing 50 years of bad luck is also billed to feature. He confesses to having suffered poverty and vicious attacks.
Jo Lyons is another writer audience should expect at the literary event. The Word informs that Lyons spent years working in Turkey as a holiday rep, in the Alpes at a ski resort, in the south of France at a vineyard and eventually washed up in Spain as a teacher.
“She thought she’d put her fairly adequate skills of ‘getting on with people’ to good use, but on her way to The Hague, she became terribly distracted by a DJ and subsequent motherhood. Twenty of her best, frozen-foreheaded years flew by before she suddenly remembered her previous ambition for world peace and politics…oh yes, and to write a book,” The Word wrote about Lyons on its website.
During the writing showcase, according to the organizers, each writer will introduce themselves and talk about their work after which a Q&A session will follow.
There will also be an opportunity to purchase the authors’ books. To view or know more about the event, click The World.
Káyọ̀dé, a writer, teacher, interpreter, consultant and author was born and raised in Ìbàdàn, Ọ̀yọ́ State, Nigeria.
He lives with his supportive wife Iyabode in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. They are both blessed with two bright children, Olamide and Ifeoluwa.
He was a writer and English Language teacher in Lagos, Nigeria before proceeding to the UK to continue the trades where he has now added the big feather of authorship of a meticulous African story told in simple clear fiction, Scars Do Heal.
The novel described by Professor Ọlágbóyèga as a “must-have” was released to the world on Dec. 3, 2021.
Scars Do Heal is available on Amazon kindle and paperback. Dedicated sales reps are in Lagos, Ibadan, Osogbo and Abuja in Nigeria. Contact the author for more information on +447735751023, [email protected], Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Linkedln.
