Curtains...and Fresh Pastures

Hi everyone,

After much reflection, I've decided to call time on this blog. It will be resurrected  in some form but not on this space. Adura's Eyes - my writing blog - will remain here. My passion to help promote African Literature with my humble contribution remains. So I'm leaving the floor open to readers and prospective readers. What would you like to read in an engaging, vibrant African LitMag with a fresh perspective? All comments welcome.

This blog will end its journey early in the New Year but will live on in the spirit of a new format elsewhere. I would like to thank all readers of Adura Ojo Presents for their support.  A very Happy New Year to you.

Adura xx
