In 2020, I was awarded a Miles Morland African Writing Scholarship to give me the financial freedom to write a book. With the death of my younger brother at its heart, The Fall will be a deeply personal memoir combining ancient myth with intergenerational realities of Ghanaians grappling with broken masculinities and mental health issues, barely hidden behind the face of contemporary 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.
