SOCIETY of Young Nigerian Writers, Anambra State Chapter is set to hold a one-day reading tagged, “Easter Reading,” as one of the literary activities to herald the 2019 Easter Day celebration.

This was contained in a statement released on Sunday by the state coordinator of the forum,  Izunna Okafor in Awka.

According to him, the reading is aimed at giving writers (both the burgeoning and the established) a platform and opportunity to read, discuss and analyse their works, other literary works and literature in general with fellow writers, as well as encouraging and promoting reading cultures. He noted that reading which is slated to hold on Saturday at the Prof. Kenneth Dike Central E-Library.

Responding to the question of who and who are invited, Izunna noted that the reading, just like every other reading the forum has been holding over the years, will be open to every writer or literary enthusiast who wants to be part of it, not withstanding which part of the state or country the person  comes from.

n his words,, “everyone is invited, both old and new members of the forum, writers and literary enthusiasts from any part of the state or the country; as long as the person has interest in being part of it, he is much welcomed”.

Adding, participation is free; all we require is for the person to be punctual to the venue and to come with materials (books or manuscript) to read,”.

Izunna, further noted that reading is indispensable and essentially recommended to any burgeoning writer who wants to grow in the literary field, and even much more important to the established writers, if they must maintain and sustain their interest and relevance in the field.

He then called on every writer and literary enthusiast from around the state and beyond, to attend and be part of the reading, as the need and the benefits therein cannot be overemphasised.
