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.
Guidelines for submission
-must have a title
– thirty lines/ longer poems will be considered if it’s on another radar of creativity
-No specific theme
– scribblings/creative rants:
Must have a title
300- 500 words
Personal experiences with high resolution images will have higher chances
You can break your story into stand-alone fractions of up to 3
Books by Nigerian authors, especially the new ones who are seemingly unknown are preferable
They must be catchy and invoke a certain warm emotion
Whether we accept or reject your piece, we will send a notification to you within two weeks. IF it is an acceptance, the link will be sent in an email to the author on the day of publication.
We can’t pay just yet but we will give a small gift to the writer with the most engaging content every month. By the “most engaging content”, we mean the piece with the highest number of shares, comments and views.

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.
