About Walter Dinjos

Hi, 

I'm Walter Emeka Dinjos. Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and for supporting me while I write Asonye, a science fiction novella, and other African themed stories.
 
I'm Nigerian, a Writers of the Future winner, and a runner-up in The Writers Bureau Writer of the Year 2017 Award.

My journey into the literary world began in 2010 when I indulged a misinformed idea to write a novel to raise money for the production of my music and earn a living for my family. It took me six months to realise two truths. One, my money-raising scheme was colossally flawed; making money through writing is tedious. Two, despite the dismal rejection letters and a few other unsuccessful publishing attempts, I had found too much fulfilment in writing to quit.

So I enrolled in a Creative Writing course at The Writers Bureau England.

Now my short stories have appeared (or are upcoming) in Writers of the Future Volume #33, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Deep Magic, Galaxy's Edge, Lamplight Magazine, Abyss & Apex, and elsewhere. My poems have appeared in three The Literary Hatchet issues, and I hope to portray the peculiar beauty of Nigerian cultures through my writing.

When I'm not writing, I travel across Nigeria, visiting the country’s many historic sites and communities to experience their diverse cultures and traditions first-hand, and when I write, this rich cultural heritage becomes the heart of my prose.

Support me while I work on Asonye, a science fiction novella about a lesbian native of a rural African village on a quest to discover the origin of her dead alien lover and at the same time find a cure to the nanovirus plaguing her village because of that late lover of hers, a nanovirus that could in theory curb crime if generally accepted in her village.

In-between, I will also be working on other African-themed stories.

My hope is that, with your help, I can take more time off freelancing to complete Asonye and write more fiction stories.
