Every year, Litro publishes international editions focusing on different parts of the globe. As 2017 marks Ghana’s sixtieth birthday, we sought to celebrate Ghana by inviting its neighbour Nigeria to join the party, exploring the literary landscape of both countries.
This issue is co-edited by Inua Ellams and features writers such as Ayobami Adebayo, Theresa Lola, Caleb Femi and Irenosen Okojie.
We celebrated the launch of this issue with a special weekend extravaganza, from 25-28 May 2017, taking over Waterstone’s Piccadilly and Tottenham Court Road. We held three days of panel talks, spoken word sessions and a free writer’s workshop with ‘Orangeboy’ author Patrice Lawrence.
