The plights of Nigerian writers in the contemporary era: the ways forward

U Nnyagu, V.C. Mbah


Writing is an indispensable means of passing information across. It is an undisputed fact that man differs from the lower animals basically because man reasons and needs information to survive. The imaginative literature, in addition to the information about a society it passes across, has many other vital roles it plays such as helping man to understand himself, helping to ease tension among others. However, in Nigeria, this all-important means of communication seems not to be given the attention it so deserves. Nigeria writers, especially the young ones face a lot of challenges hence the need for this research which aims to chronicle the plights of the average Nigeria writers and then proffer the way forward.
