Background Information

P E Adotey Addo was announced as a promising poet and a story teller in a 1957 symposium of Ghanaian writing called Voices of Ghana. He has traveled and experienced much since his poem about the founding father of Pan Africanism was published in that publication. Most of his carreer had been as a College teacher of Religion and Science . He is a poet, a storyteller and writer, a folklorist, a theologian, and a biologist. His works have been published by The Daily Graphic, in Accra, Ghana,West Africa; The Ghanaian Times, Accra, Ghana, West Africa; The Scope, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana; The Palmetto Leader, Columbia, South Carolina; The Charlotte Poetry Review, Charlotte, North Carolina; The North Carolina Christian Advocate, Greensboro, North Carolina, The Greensboro Daily news and Record to mention just a few . The greatest influence on Osofo as he puts it were the encouraging words of the Founder of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, after the publication of his poem on the first anniversary of the Independence of Ghana in 1958. He has authored one anthology of Poems, Talking Drums,1999, and two collections of folktales, Ghana Folktales, 1968 and How the Spider Became Bald, 1993, and his numerous writings have appeared in several countries and languages. On a more personal note, Addo is a retied United Methodist Minister and College Chaplain and now devotes all of his time visiting schools and colleges for readings and talks. He lives with his family in Greensboro , North Carolina.
