Author Profile: Eva Nkanta

Growing up, I was a child who really didn’t fit in, had little to no friends and found it hard to vividly express myself. I had so much bottled in as a result of this.

At age 11 thereabout, I started keeping journals, Diaries; though I got into a lot of trouble doing this because African parents have zero regards for privacy hence each time my parents stumbled on mine I get questioned. The act of keeping diary enabled me to express myself and as I grew older, I grew more love for writing.

Writing to me is freedom, most especially storytelling.

Publications, Achievements, and Awards

I don’t have any published work out there, though I’m working on my first novel and it should be out by July. However, I recently opened an Instagram page where I post my poems, quotes and diary entry.

Best Advice for Aspiring Writers in Nigeria

Sincerely? I haven’t really received any advice, a few friends who read my work tell me that it’s good. And most of my clients love my work.
