My name is Blossom Ozurumba and it is my pleasure to share some thoughts on a proposed poetry project with you.
About the poetry project:
At the beginning of this year, I commenced work as the Technical Assistant on New Media to the Honorable Minister of State, Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu. He is a poet in addition to being a technocrat. In the course of the job, he has written several poems with some focusing on Oil and Gas in Nigeria. You can find one of his popular oil and gas poems when you visit www.ibekachikwu.ng/capevi-appa. This made be think of a compilation of poems that will crowd-source submissions and be made into an e-book for non-commercial purposes for Nigerians and non-Nigerians to download and enjoy.
If this seems appealing to you, I will appreciate if you can send in your submissions to me and please note that if you choose to do so, you also agree to waive your rights to the submissions as it is an entirely pro-bono project that has no commercial purpose. You will however have your name, citation and professional illustration of your photo included in the author pages that will be a part of the e-book. If also, a print copy is done, you will receive this as at when due.
If this idea is deemed okay by you, please send me your poetry submission on Oil and Gas in Nigeria with a title of your choice, below and submit your photo when you send me an email at this special address and subject line.
