Yes, we can have a forum for upcoming writers in Africa and Nigeria precisely where they will not be taken advantage of.
This forum will start from here and nobody will be asked to pay any money into any bank account. Administrators and pseudo-administrators in this part of the world are known for extorting money from people who are looking for means of survival, but we are not going in that direction.
Anyone who is interested in becoming a member should indicate and we will begin to share ideas. Many things are involved in writing and I can assure you that they are things anyone whose IQ is, at least, average can easily understand. It is a big lie to assume or say that some people are born writers! I studied Literature in English at Obafemi Awolowo University and now, I can tell you with all confidence that I have discovered that writing skills can be meticulously acquired.
Let us come together and share ideas and extricate ourselves from the shackles of superstitions, ignorance and poverty!

The goal here is for us to become good storytellers.
I think we should begin by cultivating the habit of reading and paying attention to details; a good writer must be a good reader. In other words, we need to read extensively and intensively.
We lose many things if we can read but choose not read. Reading broadens our perspectives of the world. It makes us more aware of life's possibilties as well as its subtleties and intrigues. It sharpens our perceptions.
Mark Twain says a person who chooses not to read has no advantage over a person who is unable to read. So, let us begin by reading. It is the best route to acquiring writing skills.
