Once again, we are pleased to announce the nomination of another one of our talented writers, Onejikũ’s collection of poems, Heart Strings, for the prestigious African Christian Authors Book Award 2023 in the Poetry Category. This nomination is a testament to her exceptional poetry skills, thought-provoking storytelling, and profound insights into African poetry.
Heart Strings is about hope, rebirth, and reawakening. It is a source of hope to those who have given up or are going through hardships, a reminder that there is light at the end of the tunnel, that too shall pass, and a new day will come.
The annual African Christian Authors Book Award represents good reads and the impact of Christian books run by CLC Kenya, which celebrates and seeks to promote great books that impact the world by encouraging Christian authorship in Africa. The Award program celebrates the “best of the year” in ten categories. Finalists are chosen in each category, and the winners are announced and awarded at African Christian Authors Gala held at CLC Kenya’s Family Reading Picnic each year. Onejikũ’s recognition through this nomination in the Christian writing community is a well-deserved honour and a true testament to her dedication and passion for her craft.
