Writing Therapy

by Kwachou Monique

Writing Therapy is a varied collection of poems of a brisk, forward taste. The poet uses her poems as a form of expression of the harmonies and tensions that reassure and perturb the mind, heart and Spirit. This is a canvas of emotional expression from the frustration of the African youth to the declaration of the feminist, the desolation of the lovelorn and finally the weathered contentment of the Christian believer!

Book Preview


“… a collection of poems that exhibits the liberation of the mind expected of a young feminist in the making…”

Joyce Bayande Endeley, Professor of Women and Gender Studies, University of Buea

“This is a simple and well crafted reflection of our multifarious preoccupations – a subtext of every life – love, motherhood, hope, patriotism and our chequered existence.”

Dr Fontem Neba, English Unit, University of Buea

“Kwachou Monique … examines the ultimate puzzle of human purpose and destiny in a materialistic and hostile world. These poems deserve to be read not only as reflections of the infinite potential of the human spirit, but as poetry which is rich in its imagery, diction and structure.”

Kashim Ibrahim Tala, Professor of Literature, University of Buea
