It has been the dream of Giant Pen to produce a good magazine and now, the dream has matched reality.
The production of a good magazine takes a long time due to the collation of varieties of contents even beyond the genres of literature.
There is no feasible separation from a writer and a reader because what makes a writer a writer is the availability of readers to read him. The joy of a writer isn’t fully full until a reader reads him and the message embedded in his content meets the reader at the point of his needs.
The word is filled with problems and it’s the work of writers to proffer a solution hence it’s agreed the pen is mightier than the sword.

A lot have been saved, revamped, modified and even reincarnated by the act of writing. Corona virus was announced for long through writing in the early 1900s.
The Biafran war was narrated to us by Chinua Achebe (There Was a Country) and Chimamanda Adichie (Half Of A Yellow Sun) and other writers like Christopher Okigbo, Wọlé Soyinka and even John Pepper Bekederemo Clark. All these are the efficacy of writing. Writing brings history closer to you, refreshes your faculty and even orientation. Writing reshapes your ideology and engages your thinking faculty.
“Writing is a theoretical way of narrating what has happened, communicating what is happening and revealing the mind of tomorrow” (Judaisky)
Some great Nigerian writers are witnesses to this because what Adebayo Abayomi wrote in his Stay With Me is what’s happening today.
Elnathan John in his Becoming A Nigerian is also a satirical work that depicts the state or how things are being seen and done in Nigeria.

Infact, most of the movies they product today are inform of scripts (writing) we can’t over emphasise the efficacy and influence of writing to the society so, engage your heart while reading, you are about to discover new hidden things.
