It is a wonderful thing when poetry and tourism are combined together to form a kind of infusion like having a cup of Tea with real fruit juice in it like lemon or lime in Tea, hence it feels good to have Poetourism,an initiative of a great Poet in Nigeria ”Sir Eriata Oribhabor’
Poets in Nigeria is a Non-Governmental Organisation geared toward connecting poets for greatness. We work with the slogan, “poetry for service.”
PIN, as Poets in Nigeria is fondly called,  was founded in 2015 and has grown from there to becoming a basket of initiatives dedicated to the promotion of poetry whilst using it as a tool for boosting reading, literature and culture. Initiatives of PIN include the following: – Nigerian Students Poetry Prize (NSPP), PIN Quarterly Poetry Journal, PIN Annual Food Poetry Contest, PIN Photo Poetry, PIN 10-day Poetry Challenge, PIN Steps & Stops, Poetically Written Prose, Tongues of Poetry, Naija Poetry Performance, PIN Photo Runway, PIN Oral Solutions, Collaborative Poetry Performance, PIN Punchy Poetry, Spoken Call, Storytelling, From the Neighborhoods, Glass Door, -, PIN Gallery of Poems and National Poets Residency.
Poetourism is a coinage from the phrase, “ Poets on tour” it is an initiative geared towards promoting tourism as well as the reading culture in Nigeria.
You will agree with me that as vibrant as poetry is an art form, it does need a lot of promotion and There is no dispute to the fact that tourism is one of the fastest growing industry at the moment. To the extent that some countries economies thrive on their tourism sector.
On that backdrop, in Poetourism, we have married poetry with tourism as a means of promoting both the reading and writing of poetry as well as tourism in this country.
This platform will feature travel packages to different tourist destinations in Nigeria and beyond. And on that note, we are open to partnership with players in the tourism.
The flag-off of Poetourism holds in collaboration with the Epe Resort and Spa at the Epe Resort and Spa. With a day of reading, performances and tourism coming up on Sunday, the 31st of march 2019.
