  1. Greetings sir,
    I am a 19 years old medical student by the name Lucius Ndimele, with great interest in creative writing. I have written over 100 poems and have worked with poets like Uche Umez and John Otu.
    Please if in any way you can help me in actualizing my dreams of being a a professional poet I will be very much indebted.
    Best of lucks
