The Fearless Life of a Tireless Creator

Our guest on Inspiring Open this week is Lola Shoneyin. Lola didn’t see writing as a special skill growing up-she thought everybody could write and so she started to write. Fast-forward, Lola is now an award-winning author and poet. Some of her works include three books of poems, three children books and her highly acclaimed novel ‘The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives’ which was nominated for the Orange Prize for Fiction in 2011 and went on to win the PEN Awards. In 2020, it was announced that the book was to be a Netflix production. She is the founder of Book Buzz Foundation, organisers of the Aké Arts & Book Festival, one of the most important literary festivals on the African continent.
