I’m excited that you’re here, you can see me dancing heartily (to Jeremaih Gyang’s Ladi’s song). I’m unofficial in this page, you’re warmly welcome.

Okay, so I write poetry because I love everything about books. Books are not books if they were not written and read. So it is one thing I love to do even though I never was a literature major. It all had started from writing short love letters for clients in high school. Haha! Now the words I penned down gave way to sentences and those sentences produced paragraphs and those paragraphs gave way to whole pages and pages make up books, right? I tell and write African folklore/tales. And I had invented a style I call poetale. I hope that one day my characters will come alive. But if you’re reading me that means they are alive already. I thank you again. 

Most of the work here are forms of Nature, pastoral and love poems. I did collabos with other poets and feature other poets works on the blog. I teach African values with folklores written in poetic forms which are not necessarily poems. I’ll like to teach poetry or the new style poetale, so if there’s an opportunity please let me know. 

Please do not hesitate to tell me what you think about my work. You can connect with me on social media, by visiting the CONNECT page. 

I won’t fail to thank those who encourage me and help me in one way or the other in this journey of writing. I thank those who have a little more time to comment, like and share my work and to all my followers I say a big thank you. 

Feel free, read the blog, help it connect with a larger audience by sharing what may catch your fancy and let’s take West African literature to a greater height. 

Yours’ penly, 

Iroegbu Okechukwu.
