GIVE BACK: INTERNING OPPORTUNITIES AT THE LAGOS BOOK AND ART FESTIVAL



GIVE BACK: INTERNING OPPORTUNITIES AT THE LAGOS BOOK AND ART FESTIVAL

The committee for Relevant Art (CORA) is one of the bodies behind the upcoming Lagos Book and Art Festival starting on the 14th to the 16th of November 2014. The book and Festival this year is celebrating Wole Soyinka at 80 amongst many other themes. This is an insanely good endeavour and one we at 9jeducation wholly support.

But the CORA organization can't do this alone, this is why the CORA organisation along with the organizing committee for LABAF 2014 has made available internship spots for this year's festival. This year young Lagosians from all walks of life who love writing will be given the opportunity to participate in bringing to life a Book and Art Festival while learning valuable skills about the literary industry works. There is also the added perk of being able to add this kind of work experience to one's resume. And finally you get to make connections working so closely with professionals and your Nigerian Literary idols and becoming a part of the CORA and LABAF communities, something I think every aspiring writer needs.

 I personally would intern if I could, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't. If you have time to spare this and next week and would like to contribute to a worthy cause, you can go over to www.coraartfoundation.com or just fill their volunteer application form here:

Just fill it up and they will reach out to you, who knows, you might end up meeting Wole Soyinka himself.

From us, its Hello.

Edwin Okolo.
