Episode 157: Buy the Book with Eghosa Imasuen

Greetings Glocal Citizens!
This week is a flashback to October 2022 when I spent a weekend with writers at the Pa Gya! Literary Festival in Accra. I met Nigerian writer and cofounder of Narrative Landscape Press Limited, Dr. Eghosa Imasuen at the first panel I attended, “Can the African Book Industry Thrive?” For Eghosa the answer must be yes, especially as a firm that believes that owning the means of production is essential to a vibrant publishing industry. Narrative Landscapes Press is committed to more than simply printing physical books they also bring editorial and book design expertise to the fore while developing a cadre of excellent writers.

Eghosa’s second novel, Fine Boys, a coming-of-age novel, received wide acclaim in 2012 and was published in America by the Ohio University Press’ Modern African Writers Series in 2021. When he’s not writing or publishing, Eghosa teaches creative writing at the annual Chimamanda Adichie Creative Writing Workshop. Prior to launching into his literary career, he graduated with a medical degree from the University of Benin.

In this feel good and insightful conversation, Dr. Eghosa shares tips on how to work with publishers and about the how business of bringing books to the people promises to change the narrative on literacy, lifestyle and literary careers all over Africa.
