EBEDI International Writers Residency, Iseyin, has received three new male writers for the June residency program.
The three writers, Izunna Okafor, Isaiah Adepoju, and Hassan Muhammad, arrived the Residency, in Iseyin, Oyo State, early this week for a month-long residency stay, replacing the immediate-past fellows, who were all female.
Hosting the new writers to a reception party, alongside other stakeholders from the Iseyin community; the founder and patron of Ebedi International Writers Residency, Wale Okediran explained that the residency affords writers comfortable and calm environment to focus on their writing without distraction and also at no cost on the writers.
Dr. Okediran, a former House of Reps member and current Secretary-General of Pan-African Writers Association (PAWA), said while concentrating on their individual works, the writers are expected to also interact with selected students of some secondary schools in Iseyin town for about four hours weekly, during which they can teach the students any form of creative arts or writing, as they so desire.
He also revealed that since its inception 12 years ago, the Ebedi Writers Residency has hosted over 300 writers from different countries of the world.
