Writing

In 2020, I was awarded a Miles Morland African Writing Scholarship to give me the financial freedom to write a book. The Fall will be a deeply personal memoir connecting the death of my younger brother to matters of masculinity and mental health that have been broken over generations and across space, now lying crushed under the weight of contemporary Ghanaian culture.

A finalist in the inaugural 2008 John La Rose Memorial Short Story Competition, my opinion pieces have also appeared in publications including The Guardian, and my short stories have been published in places like Litro and the Writers Project of Ghana anthology, The Sea Has Drowned the Fish.

Below is but a sample of things I have written over the years.
