Letter Home & Biafran Nights Longlisted for $100,000 NLNG Prize

August 12, 2013, Letter Home & Biafran Nights (LBHN), the second poetry collection by Afam Akeh was longlisted for the $100,000 NLNG Nigeria Literature Prize 2013.

Published in December 2012 by SPM Publications – an imprint of Sentinel Writing & Publishing Company Ltd, LBHN has received critical acclaim from literary critics and scholars across the world.

All of us at Sentinel are quite optimistic that Letter Home & Biafran Nights will make the shortlist and possibly win the prize, but we must temper down this optimism in recognition of the quality and talents to be found in the other books which have also been longlisted for the prize, including Obi Nwakanma’s Birthcry, Tade Ipadeola’s The Sahara Testaments, former Sentinel Poetry (Online) editor Amatoritsero Ede’s Globetrotter and Hitler’s Children, ’Promise Ogochukwu’s Wild Letters, Gomba Obari’s Length of Eyes, Egbewo G’ebinyo’s Marsh Boy and Other Poems, Iquo Eke’s The Symphony of Becoming, Amu Nnadi’s Through the Window of a Sandcastle, Remi Raji’s Sea on My Mind and Launko Okinba’s Seven Stations Up the Stairways.

Letter Home & Biafran Nights is available at SPM Publications, Barnes & Noble, all Amazon sites and all good online stores.
