Dul Johnson - IWP Fellow 2010-2011

Nigerian fiction writer and documentary filmmaker Dul Johnson is the author of two collections of short fiction, Shadows and Ashes and Why Women Won’t Make it to Heaven. A resident of the city of Jos in Nigeria’s troubled Plateau State, Johnson has been unable to practice as a writer because of threats of reprisal and unremitting social and political upheaval including riots and uprisings targeting his ethnic group, the Tarok. He will be in residence at Brown until December, 2010.
