Call for submission

Six months since the relaunch of EBOQUILLS, we have continued to make notable progress. And some people ask how come there is always something new? And my answer is, “It’s about growth. There’s always something new for those who are open to growth”

I have shouldered all the writings on the website and I often get people asking me how I cope. Well, I just did. When you sit at the back sit and passion is behind the steering, there’s almost nothing that’s unachievable.

However, I feel it is time to put this out to you and all my amazing writer friends who I have read over the years and still enjoy reading, we want to feature your poems, short stories, creative rants and scribblings, book reviews, letters to your son/daughter/lover. We want to make EBOQUILLS a cocktail of voices. Like a fruit salad with many tiny bits of different juicy fruits.

So if your soul, just like mine is saturated and crystalizing poems and creative pieces at various intervals, this one is for you.
