About Us

About Us

EBOquills is a literary platform, which aside from promoting African Literature, seeks to be a clinic for creatives and a spa for stressed and distressed artists. We want to take hundreds of writers from the shadows and place them in the spotlight. Because we know that writing is a sojourn on a long lonely lane and it is difficult to stay sane with overdoses of silence and solitude. This is why we want to walk willing writers down this lane, offer pieces of advice, churn out writing prompts and simply be a reliable support system.

Dear young writers,

When you're reading something you like written by someone who is not you, please, please do not copy out lines if your intention is to use them in your own writing. That's how you get into trouble. It's plagiarism.
