JOIN THE EMOTION FAMILY: CALL FOR SUBMISSION

In the year 2013, Emotion Press launched BookRepublic – http://www.bukrepublik.com – an online literary magazine that has published several articles and interviewed emerging Nigerian writers. A year after, the company launched its literary television programme – Booktv Africa – a unique media platform aimed at making books seem cool to young Africans.
