In collaboration with Professor Eustace Palmer of Georgia College and State University, we published in 2014 an edited collection of the works of acclaimed Sierra Leonean poet and novelist Syl Cheney-Coker.

The book, published by Africa World Press, is titled Emerging Perspectives on Syl Cheney-Coker. It is divided into three sections: Interviews with Syl Cheney-Coker, Poetry, and the Novel. There is also an Introduction by Eustace Palmer and Ernest Cole and Select Bibliography for further reading. The collection has a total of 7 interviews, 5 articles on poetry, and 8 articles on the novel.

To this collection, I contributed the following articles: “Interview with Syl Cheney-Coker,” in Section A, and “Correcting the Lenses- The Poetry of Syl Cheney-Coker: From Opacity to Transparency,” and “The Poetry of Syl Cheney-Coker” in Section B. The cost of the volume is $39.99.
