Celestine Nudanu has blazed the trail again, exploring her passion for micro-poetry with yet another collection, Whispers of Dawn (A Book of Cherita). Cherita (a Malay word meaning story or tale) is the six-lined verse in which Celestine effortlessly and fearlessly weaves her magic, sharing her personal truths about love, betrayal, abuse, loss and ultimately of faith in her life. The first to publish Haiku (the Japanese short poetry form) in Ghana, Celestine’s first book, Haiku Rhapsodies won the Atukwei Okai Award for Best Poetry Book in 2017, under the Ghana Association of Writers Literary Awards.
Celestine Nudanu graduated from the University of Ghana, Legon, with a BA in English and Theatre Arts, and MA degree in International Affairs. Many of her works have appeared in renowned international Haiku and Cherita journals. Celestine is a member of the Ghana Association of Writers (GAW) and the United Haiku and Tanka Society (UHTS), USA.
