The Book Reign Initiative – BRI, as part of its activities in driving rural educational development through innovation and promoting the reading culture in Nigeria, wishes to discover new artistic talents and hereby call for entries in the #BRI- Echoes In The Web Design Contest.
Echoes in the Web is the newest work of fEMIoWOLABI- a pioneer writer with the Initiative who also double as the Media Strategist.
Echoes in the Web is a fictional piece that embodies the very definition of a compelling story. It unfolds interesting plot beginnings which appear independent of each other but which curiously maintain high-level suspense powerful enough to evoke and stretch reader attention span. This common feature of the plot parts stylistically functions as an effective unifying force.
As the plot develops, it vividly portrays easily identifiable relational concerns so widespread that they reflect common humanity, and with traceable history which lends credibility to the narrative.
The socio-geographical setting strongly evokes an Africanness in harmony with local verisimilitude, building credibility further.
