NSUK grad­u­ate wins SONTA play­wright award

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

and a novelist who has had lit­er­ary works across the­atre and other gen­res of art

“Win­ning the SONTA play­write prize is a dream come true. It started from my first play ‘Know Amanda’ but was later de­vel­oped through the in­stru­men­tal­ity of my lec­turer, Prof. Bar­clays Ayako­roma when he ad­vised me to en­ter for the award en­tries.

“It has to­day paid off with my an­nounce­ment as the play­wright of the year. This is only the be­gin­ning of more hard work. I be­lieve that more doors would be open for me to feel pro­pelled to come up with bet­ter works that would fetch me more awards in near fu­ture,” Glo­ria said, ges­tic­u­lat­ing as she demon­strated her be­wil­der­ment.

The young grad­u­ate said she would con­tinue to por­tray the ills in the so­ci­ety through her lit­er­ary works and urged all young peo­ple who are in­ter­ested in writ­ing to also read from other peo­ple’s cre­ativ­ity and ar­ti­cles, which ac­cord­ing to her help her in com­pos­ing her lit­er­ary works.
