  1. I am a young poet and would like to participate actively with the activities of PIN.

  2. A good idea and good promotion of the arts of poetry, a very technical craft in every ramification. Such a conference will also try to reappraise current trends in modern Nigerian poetry. Good arrangement which will definitely spur aspiring writers. Good luck PIN.
