Meeting writers on the page since 1996


Vanessa Onwuemezi

“Routine was the word.

I liked routine, a route to somewhere in time. A rope with which to pull myself along, by sheer force of will, to the other side of the river one day, and then back again the next day and so on, and so on the next day and so on.”

Story from ‘I Am a Foreign Land’ – included in the showcase

“I like that the critique has challenged me meet the reader halfway, honing my skills as a writer and spurring me to interrogate my text from a different angle. The consultation has added new facets to my capacity as an editor, which is half of being a writer. I’m still immersed in the writing of my book, and I’m sure that the work has benefitted from this experience.” From the Introduction
