5B is designed to serve as a network for young writers, under 35 and of African descent, currently working on a novel. The goal of the Network is to assist the 5 members of the network in completing a novel - by way of critiques, editorial suggestions and publishing hints. However, the objective is open-ended. The first project of the network will begin in October 2011.

Interested members should take note of the following:

If interested, please contact Emmanuel by email ( Send a summary of your plot, the proposed word range, a brief publishing history, a short (or long) introduction about yourself, and any other detail you feel is important for the purpose of the project.
