Small but mighty Atilola will be flowing words at WORD UP Volume 2


Atilola

Atilola Moronfolu is a multi-faceted entrepreneur. She is a Writer, Editor, spoken word artist, and popular writing blogger on atilola.blogspot.com. She also edits books for fellow writers and bloggers and gets them ready for publishing. 

Graduating from University of Lagos at the age of 21, where she studied Computer Engineering, she started consulting with PricewaterhouseCoopers at a very young age, where she won the PwC Experience Community Champion award for the year 2011, and the Most Different and Unusual staff of the year 2011.

Because of her style of writing, which most times borders on the reality of the societal ills around us, she has been tagged so many names, ranging from social writer to social commentator. But she sometimes calls herself The Character Thief.

She has performed in popular spoken word events like Word Up, Unchained voices, Chill and Relax etc., and reads regularly at the US Consulate literary program, Read it Loud. She is one of the popular faces of the spoken word movement in Nigeria today.

Transiting from consulting into the literary world, she has made giant strides in a very short period. She is the author of Antonyms of a Mirage, the now popularly trending collection of Drama, Prose, and Poetry in Nigeria, and is on the verge of releasing her second novel.
