African Literary Podcast Episode 16: Chimeka Garricks.

The African Literary Podcast interviews Chimeka Garricks as part of our Afrolit Sans Frontières series.

Chimeka Garricks is a lawyer, editor, and ghost copywriter. His fiction includes the acclaimed novel, Tomorrow Died Yesterday, and the collection of short stories, A Broken People’s Playlist. The collection which he wrote with the aid of music while trying to avoid working on another novel is coming on June 8.

The Lagos-based writer shared with us why he turned to the short form to get his writing mojo back, how the Nigerian and African literary scene has changed since his last book came out ten years ago and his expectations of being a guest at the Afrolit Sans Frontieres festival currently running online.

This podcast is a part of our role as the media partner for Afrolit Sans Frontières.
