This writing project started when Samuel Browne took part in a poetry writing competition held in Nigeria West Africa. He did not win but received an award as an honorable mention and one of the judges was a Harvard Professor. His poem was later published in the Nigerian Chronicle and published again in the Rainbow Competition Storybook, fueling an excitement among the children who began writing over that summer vacation.
