Welcome to Fiction and Development Blog!
This Blog serves as a platform to discuss and explore ideas that will contribute in advocating and creating awareness of different international development issues. It also serves as a springboard for the ‘Fiction and Development Column’ currently running in Nigeria’s Compass Newspaper. In line with what is featured in the column, it will explore possible linkages between different development issues and literary works of fictions from writers worldwide. We welcome the use of characters, scenes, themes and other components of literary work to discuss issues of development concern. We hope to engage short stories,novel, drama, amongst other forms of fiction to explore how international development issues can or has been presented knowledgeably in literary fiction.
There will be comparisons, discussions, assumptions and suggestions.
