I’m so happy I started a digital literary platform for Sierra Leonean literature. The growth over the past couple of months has been tremendous! One of the key features of the website is an interview series I’m running, wherein I ask writers from Sierra Leone questions about their work and their creative journeys. So far, Pede Hollist, Siana Bangura, Nadia Maddy, and Namina Forna have shared their beautiful words with Poda-Poda Stories.
I recently got to interview New York Times Bestselling author Ishmael Beah, and it was such an inspiring conversation. Check it out here.
