THE VILLAGE THINKERS
THE VILLAGE THINKERS POETRY HONORARY AWARDS
As part of it conscious efforts to continually inspire African and culturally based writings, “THE VILLAGE THINKERS” introduces its maiden honorary awards initiative to award its ever-soulfilled poets and their writings.
To inspire a generation of writers who are not dissuaded in any means by these esoteric and recondite foreign writings, but are ever ready to tell the stories of this continent in it simplest and uniqueness.
To break the long held chronic monopoly of foreign writings that has eaten into the mindset of the African and portrayed the culture of Africans in its bad light.
Mode of honoring:
The mode is just a simple cut-in methodology, that is, to be honoured in this respect, the writer must at least first, believe in the true beauty of the African culture. Again, must be a writer whose interests seeks to tell the neglected stories of old. Third, such individual must at least in his or her writings be proven to demonstrate a lasting desire to perpetuate the heroic, spiritual, religious, political, social, environmental and mental forthwithness of the African heritage; be it those of his own country or the continental ribs at large.
