  4. segun akinyode Says:

    Hi, everybody. Why is it that no university in Nigeria offers creative writing either at bachlors or masters degree?

  5. Peter Donatus Says:

    Dear Sir / Madam,

    My name is Peter Donatus. I am trying to reestablish contact with Godwin Ede, a very good friend and companion of mine, a nigerian writer in exile in Canada. He once lived in Germany. I understand he is now living in canada since 2002. I was told by an african activist friend to contact you. He said that you might be able to link me up with Godwin Ede. I would be glad, if you could link me up with him. Alternatively, maybe you could suggest some other possibilities in this regard.
    Please reply.
    Thanking you in anticipation of your assistance.
    Greetings from Germany.

    Peter Donatus

      Amatoritsero Ede is a Nigerian-Canadian poet. In 1998 he won the All-Africa Christopher Okigbo Prize for Literature with his first collection of poems, Caribbean Blues; A writer’s Pains. He had written under the name “Godwin Ede”. He stopped bearing his ‘Christian’ first name as a way to protest the xenophobia and racism he noted in Germany, a ‘Christian’ country, and to an extent, to protest Western colonialism in general.[1] He was a Hindu Monk with the Hare Krishna Movement, and has worked as a Book Editor with a major Nigerian trade publisher, Spectrum Books. In 1993 he won the runner-up prize of the Association of Nigerian Authors’ (ANA) Poetry Competition with the manuscript of “A Writer’s Pains”; in 1998 the ANA All Africa Christopher Okigbo Prize for Literature (endowed by Wole Soyinka, Nigerian Nobel Laureate for literature) with his first collection of poems, Collected Poems: A writer’s Pains & Caribbean Blues (Bremen, Germany: Yeti Press, 1998; Lagos: Oracle Books, 2001) and second prize in the first May Ayim Award: International Black German Literary Prize, in 2004. He also appears in the following anthologies: TOK 1: Writing the New Toronto Helen Walsh ed. (Toronto: Zephyr Press, 2006), Camouflage: Best of Contemporary Nigerian Writing Nduka Otiono & Diego Okonyedo eds. (Yenogoa, Nigeria: Treasure Books, 2006), May Ayim Award Anthology Peggy Piesche et al. eds. (Berlin, Germany: Orlanda Verlag, 2004), The Fate of Vultures: BBC Prize-Winning Poetry. Peter Porter et al. eds. (Oxford: Heinemann International, 1989), Und auf den Strassen eine Pest Uche Nduka ed. (Bad Honnef, Germany: Horlemann Verlag, 1996) and Voices from the Fringe: An ANA Anthology of New Nigerian Poetry. Harry Garuba ed. (Lagos: Malthouse Press, 1988). His second Collection, Globetrotter & Hitler’s Children (New York: Akaschic Books, 2009), is out. He was the 2005-2006 Writer-in-Residence at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada under the auspices of PEN Canada’s Writer-in-Exile network. He edited Sentinel Online poetry journal from 2005 to 2007. He is a SSHRC Fellow and Doctoral Candidate in English literature at Carleton University, Ottawa. He is the Publisher and Managing Editor of Maple Tree Literary Supplement, MTLS at . Ede has lived in Canada since 2002, sponsored as a writer-in-exile by PEN Canada. Between 2005 and 2007 he edited an international online poetry journal, Sentinel Poetry Online.[2][3]
