Chiagozie Fred Nwonwu, who writes under the pen name of Mazi Nwonwu, is a Lagos-based journalist and writer. While journalism and its demands take up much of his time, when he can, Nwonwu writes speculative fiction, which he believes is a vehicle through which he can transport Africa’s diverse cultures to the future. His work has appeared in Lagos 2060 (Nigeria’s first science fiction anthology), AfroSF (the first pan-African science fiction anthology), Sentinel Nigeria, Brittle Paper, African Writer, Saraba Magazine, and It Wasn’t Exactly Love, an anthology on sex and sexuality published by Farafina in 2015.
