Stories speak! The words that form stories have colours through which they paint images – beautiful and ugly – but vivid images all the same. They have power; power to make, and power to break. We, at The Caged Bird Sings, hope the stories we tell, the images we paint, beautiful or ugly, make, rather than break.
We interrogate the politics of the day, engage issues affecting our society, review Memoirs, historical fiction, and books on Africa and by Africans, and write fictional pieces about everyday experiences. Unlike everyday news, the pieces here try to take a critical and stimulating view to societal issues. We hope you enjoy and engage with our work introspectively, retrospectively, and critically.
Welcome aboard and thank you for being here!
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
