…an object will not change its motion unless a force acts on it — Newton.
The October 2022 Issue of CỌ́N-SCÌÒ Magazine honours selfless individuals—pacesetters, as we labelled them—who have shown a sustained desire to create opportunities, communities, and supportive structures for everyone in the Nigerian literary space we share. Our four honorees: Olumide Holloway, Eriata Oribhabor, Brigitte Poirson, and Wale Okediran, established institutions and initiatives that have shaped Nigerian literature over the past two decades, and I hope that your reading of their stories will inspire you. We also have beautiful poetry, fascinating art, and nonfiction celebrating prominent names from the past and living annals of Nigerian literature.
