BACKGROUND TO POETIC WEDNESDAYS INITIATIVE

Poetic Wednesdays is a youth-oriented Non-Governmental, Non-political and Non-partisan literary organization which focuses on promoting, encouraging and inspiring young people to unleash their creativity and tapping into their literary passion by providing them with a platform to network and interact with others. It supports Goal 4 (Ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities) and Goal 9 (Building
resilient infrastructure, promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialization and fostering innovation) of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Its operations are both online and offline, with special focus on young adults from Northern Nigeria.
At the heart of this literary organization is the reawakening of minds of especially young Nigerians on the need for better and meaningful social media interactions away from the common and prevailing sharing of fake news, gossips, bigotry and political jingoism. We aim to recruit young and seasoned minds for the purpose of doing social good through writing and connecting a link between the grassroots with intellectuals and the intellectuals with decision makers on pertinent and big issues.
