Why is Emmanuel Olowe bookending so many American story writers?
Posted by andrewpaul on April 22nd, 2021
Among the best-selling authors in the USA, Emmanuel Olowe has written some very good books. Among the most loved books of Emmanuel Olowe are "The Man Who Walked on Water", "A Brief History of Kenya". He has also written a number of screenplays and was known to pen the script for "Chronicles of Nairobi" and "The Damnedest of Cats". His first novel was "Laguna Beach", which he later turned into "A Midsummer Night's Dream". There have been various other books and screenplays written by Olowe that have won him many awards including the Camera Prize and the Grand Prize from the Satellite Awards.
As a story writer, Olowe has used some very good elements in his writing. His use of conflict between characters is very effective and readers can relate to them easily. His plots are always gripping and his use of language is graceful. He has won several awards for his screenplays and books and those two accomplishments alone speak for themselves.
As a writer, it is but obvious that Olowe has an ear for a good story. He has a unique way of telling a story using short sharp dialogues and descriptions. It is evident from his TV serials and his interviews that the writer possesses a big imagination. This is the kind of quality that most admired writers possess and it comes through clearly in Olwee's work.
One of the most talked-about parts of the movie is the relationship between the main character, Maina and his cousin, Kiara. The two girls bond over their love of birds. This relationship blossoms and by the end of the movie, you can't help but fall in love with Maina. The story involving the two cousins was heartwarming and you could definitely relate to them. The writers did a good job of developing the relationship and making it feel real.
Olowe does a great job at creating conflict within the story and the reader is always left wondering how the conflict will be resolved. This is a trick that many storytellers fail to master and it definitely shows through Olwee's writing. The way he presents the conflict will compel the reader to go with the story and at the same time, the tension will build as the reader waits for resolution. A well-written short story will leave the reader wanting for more and one that wins awards are proof that a story writer can indeed be an award winner.
Olowe is not the only storyteller with such honors. There are many other writers of African descent who have won awards for their stories. If you look hard enough, you can find some gems within the walls of the libraries of South Africa. With the advent of the Internet, many writers have found the platform to express themselves through words and this is the perfect way to get published.
