Elijah Lawal is a writer, which considering you're reading this on a literary agency's website, makes perfect sense. He has been writing since he was a teenager when he used to charge his classmates £1 for stories of Nigerian myths & legends - proving that everyone needs a good side-hustle. He is passionate about debunking stereotypes and shining a light on black culture so it comes as no surprise that his debut non-fiction book, The Clapback is a definitive guide to addressing negative stereotypes about the black community. Elijah is a board member of Creative Access, an organisation dedicated to helping black, Asian, and minority ethnic people get into creative industries. And having had first-hand experience in this area, he will help you break the news to your parents about quitting the law to pursue a creative career. Elijah is also a communications manager and spokesperson for Google but will definitely not fix your computer - especially if it has a Windows operating system. Elijah plans to continue writing books about the black experience and sharing the beauty of black culture.
