I bring you greetings and loads of warm fuzzy thoughts from the land of stories. Things have been rather slow here and a lot of dust has gathered, an unanticipated consequences of growth in our personal lives. We are awake now, ready and willing to do better.
Like every other good thing we have hosted on this website, we need your input to make this bang. Yes, we do. So this is a call for submissions, a call to get in formation, to let our inks flow!
So here is a quick rundown of our different categories and when they are published :
1. FEMME ADVENTURES.
Help us understand how it feels to be a young Nigerian woman living in or out of Nigeria. Whatever direction you choose to come from (work, relationships, expectations of society, marriage, sexuality etc), we are willing to go with you. Posts in this category go up on Sunday(1.00pm)
2. VANTAGE POINT (THE EDITORIAL)
We are lucky to have editors who are also excellent writers, so on Mondays (10.00am) they open a window and let us into their worlds.
3. FLYING NIGERIAN
How does being a young Nigerian man living in or out of Nigeria feel? How do you deal with the pressure to blow? To be a hard guy? What are the challenges you face? the high/low points? Tuesdays (10.00am) is when we gather with empathy (and of course popcorn) to read your stories.
Can you tell already that this is my favorite category? Being a ‘traveler’ that has gone nowhere, you have no idea how eager I am to go on your trips with you. Trips that have happened, are currently happening, are yet to happen, happened in your mind or in your dreams, we welcome stories about all of them! Start typing now!! Your day is Wednesday and the time is 10.00am.
5. CREATIVITY WITHOUT A LEASH.
On Thursday, we go FICTION-CRAZY!!!
6. CORRIDOR 48 (HORROR)
Is it scary? I mean, is it REALLY scary? Yes? Alright then , please let us read it on FRIDAYYYYY!!!

7. SATURDAY TIDBITS.
This category is a random as random goes, and a great way to start the weekend.
