I am Thelma Afua Awo Twumwa Acheampong, using Afua Awo Twumwa when I write. I write poetry, fiction and non-fiction that shares my life, how I’m living it and my view of the world.
I am and so my work is hugely influenced by faith, what I call ‘Ghanaianism’ and the human experience.
Above all things, I want to fall in love with words, with language, with the ability to wield it & the helplessness of not finding the words when I need them for certain feelings. I want to be in love with all this first. So my work is a sharing of this love, an overflow.
