Walter Dinjos


Walter Dinjos is Nigerian and a second place winner in Writers of the Future Contest.

He loves singing and songwriting as much as he does fiction writing. That’s because music was his first love. In fact, as a non-native English speaker, he had sufficient apathy for writing in English, until 2010 when he indulged a misinformed idea to write a novel to raise money for the production of his music.

It took him six months to realise two truths. One, his money-raising scheme was colossally flawed; making money through writing is tedious. Two, despite the dismal rejection letters and a few other unsuccessful publishing attempts, he had found much fulfilment in writing to quit.

So he enrolled in the Writers Bureau’s Comprehensive Creative Writing course.

Now, his speculative short stories are resident in Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Space & Time Magazine, Myriad Lands Volume 1, Bourbon Penn, and other literary magazines, his poems have appeared in three Literary Hatchet issues, and he hopes to portray the peculiar beauty of Nigerian cultures through his writing.

When he finds time away from his day job, he is plotting his science fantasy novel. Either that or he is exploring means (both scientific and magical) of attaining immortality. If you happen upon a medical remedy or a spell, please tweet him via @WalterDinjos.
