Short Bio

Sibbyl Whyte is a Nigerian writer subject to the whims of her headstrong chi. Bits of her imagination have appeared on Gypsiana – her laptop, Facebook, Naijastories, The Kalahari Review, Afridiaspora, anthologies of prose and poetry she could mention if asked and elsewhere. She is currently at work on the untold stories in her head. Meanwhile, she’d have you know that the sun that shines in Katsina where she currently resides, boils her brain while she serves her fatherland, without adequate pay of course.

What will you do with the prize money if you emerge winner?

Spend it on a tablet, books and bury some as souvenir.

Short Bio

Creative, Law student (almost done though. I’ll be in law school in like 4 months tops) I don’t particularly believe in bios as they create a mental image of the person and that detracts from the work. Plus putting stuff like “part time alcoholic” is cliché.

What will you do with the prize money if you emerge winner?

If I get the money I’ll set up a charity to help penguins with their low self-esteem (they’re depressed they can’t fly and it makes them suicidal sometimes). Psyche! I’ll probably spend it all on clothes; it’s the honorable thing to do.
