How To Enter CNA’s Purple Hibiscus Trust Creative Writing Workshop 2019
Although the co-facilitators for the 2019 edition of the Purple Hibiscus Trust Creative Writing have not yet been announced, applications are now being received. The entry process is pretty easy and the fact that it does not require any registration or entry fee makes it all the more attractive.
This year’s edition of the workshop will kick off on December 9- December 14, 2019 in Anambra. And if you ask me, I feel it is a great way to end the year, much like chocolate toppings for your cupcake. Did I hear you say, ‘yummy’? Oh well…
The workshop which in its previous editions lasted for 10 days will last for 5 days, yet it promises a lot, considering that the venue has been changed from Lagos to the heart of the Eastern region which has a rich culture. This would be an opportunity to visit the places where CNA and the great Achebe harvested their stories and I think you should not underrate it.

"Along Came Love" by Zubair Hassan Baba, is what we might refer to as brilliant historical fiction. You may smile or sigh but surely, you will fall deeply in love with Zubair's storytelling style at the end of it all.

"...I am the voice of reason,
That dance not to the deceitful tone
Of political eloquence and propaganda
I am the voice above religious hypocrisy and sycophancy
Truth is my warrant and change is my cause..."
