About

Ogundare Tope is a lover of books, nature and ‎music. A jack of all trades, dabbling into creative writing, poetry, photography, song writing and composition, none of which he is good at but has fun doing!

He is a senior registrar at Neuropsychiatric Hospital Abeokuta by day, where he is lost in the world of science and unraveling the mystery of the human mind and trying to save the world, and a writer and blogger by night, lost in the beauty of the world of words.
His poems have appeared in online magazines, daily sun newspaper and an anthologies like Anthology of African poetry “Black Communion” and Weavers Anthology. His works are also featured in http://www.faithwriters.com, http://www.naijastories.com, Kalahari Review

Writing is a lifestyle for him and is sometimes cathartic.

He loves feedbacks from you, dear readers and your comments and suggestions are highly welcome.

You can reach him via his Email: anabiophs@gmail.com

    You’re a trainee psychiatrist – good luck! I’ve just finished my PhD in child and adolescent mental health at the Institute of Psychiatry in London – I have some amazing colleagues who inspire me every day! x

    1. topazo says:

      wow! it’s nice meeting you..child and adolescent mental health is one area I am considering specializing in….

      1. PookyH says:

        it’s fascinating, I love it very much , though it does make me somewhat paranoid about my own children! I mainly work with schools, training staff up and hearing very sad stories 😦

        1. topazo says:

          the hazard of the job…I wonder how we stay happy sometimes…and have a ‘normal’ life….

          1. PookyH says:

            A glass of wine on the train home is usually quite helpful I find!!!

            1. topazo says:

              lol. what of days when the sad stories are overwhelming? a bottle?

              1. PookyH says:

                on those days it’s usually a glass of wine and a bag of haribo!

      Hi, I am glad to have you on board! Yemie sent me over to your site too, she gushed about you so much that I couldn’t resist the urge to run over to your site and see for myself, and she wasn’t mincing words when she was saying those beautiful words about you!

  8. Hi,

    I’m Tokoni i’m a student and poet. Its nice to meet you i would like to invite you to my blog, http://www.insanitybeautiful.wordpress.com if you’re interested. Thanks!

    1. topazo says:

      Hi Tokoni, I visit your blog from time to time, and your blog is bookmarked on my phone browser.

  9. Hi Topazo,

    I was wondering if you would like to participate in “A Tour Through BlogLand” or also known as the “Virtual Blog Tour Award”?

    If you accept, it is a single post that you would write on Monday the 2 of February, 2015.

    The rules:
    1. Pass the tour on up to four other bloggers. Give them the rules and a specific Monday to post.
    2. Answer four questions about your creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires you to do what you do:
    •What am I working on at the moment?
    •How does my work differ to others in my genre?
    •Why do I write/create what I do?
    •How does my writing/creative process work?
    3. Compose a one-time post on a specific Monday (date given from your nominator).

    Mine will be up on the January 19, 2015.
