The Abuja Literary Society (ALS) – founded by Victor Anoliefo, Ike Anya, Ferdinand Agu and Ken Ike Okere in 1998 – is an initiative that brings together writers, aspiring writers, book-lovers, intellectuals, and generally anyone with an interest in the literary arts and looking to relax in a creative atmosphere. The Literary Society currently consists of weekly meetings held on every Friday of any given month, in which a variety of activities take place. These activities include open mic poetry sessions, book readings, book discussions, literary workshops among others. Apart from the weekly meetings, ALS organizes periodic events that contribute to its overarching goal of building and sustaining a thriving literary space in Abuja.
The Abuja Literary Society has set for itself the task of generating and sustaining a literary culture, and the creation of an alternative literary-based entertainment in Nigeria’s nascent Federal Capital City. ALS attracts resident and visiting writers, literary enthusiasts, as well as visual and performance artists. ALS welcomes all literary enthusiasts to be part of its community.
