Oritsegbemi Emmanuel Jakpa
I was born in Warri, Nigeria, and live in Ireland. I studied at the University of Lagos, and the University of Iowa. I obtained a Master of Arts from Waterford Institute of Technology.
My poetry has been published in a number of online and print journals and an Irish-Canadian anthology. I was nominated for the 2009 Pushcart Prize by The Swarthmore Literary Review, The Taylor Trust, and Jack Magazine.
