The Ghana Voices Series is a monthly series of reading organised by the Writers Project of Ghana in partnership with the Goethe Institute Accra. The reading is scheduled for the last Wednesday of each month.
For the month of April, the reading will take place on 24 April, 2013 and will commence from 7PM to 8PM at the Goethe Institute, 30 Kakramadu Road, Cantonments (near NAFTI).
Martin is a widely published poet and his works have appeared in anthologies and a plethora of online literary magazines.
His collection of short stories, Mr Happy and the Hammer of God and Other Stories, which was re-issued by Ayebia Clarke Publishing in 2012, was described by American writer Laban Hill as “clever and ingenious” and “well-written and wildly entertaining” by Ghanaian literary giant Ama Ata Aidoo. If you are as yet to pick up a copy of the book, another literary big-wig kofi Anyidoho says of the collection: “You [will] hold your breath for the next surprise”
Martin will be reading from his collection as well as some selected poems. The Ghana Voices Series is free and open to the public. We strongly urge you to make a date. For more information, visit the website of Writers Project of Ghana.
