What is LitNaija?

 

LitNaija (LN) is a Nigerian blog for literature, strictly  a platform for Nigerian writers and literature works, we expose and review books written by Nigerian authors, or books used by most Nigerian schools written by other African authors, if we can’t get them on this page, we would definitely refer you to where you can get them, LitNaija also contains literature articles for Nigerian students, current literature news, a pile of entertainment such as poems, the best of  short stories, and other vital information that matters in the world of the Nigerian literature.
Although, compared to previous eras of literature in Nigeria, the contemporary literature in Nigeria is starting to gain reputable ground among western literature, but more needs to be done in other for young authors to be encouraged, and more prizes brought into the country, it boosts the possibilities if more platforms promoting Nigerian literature where authors can be accessed and reviewed and works promoted. Litnaija is a proud supporter of Nigerian literature.
Here, upcoming writers can send in their work to be edited and/or published online and get recognition. We long to make the richness of our literature and culture accessible to many.
More so, It would serve as an academic material to literature students in Nigeria and a contribution to the global recognition of Nigerian literature.
