Francesca Brown, Stylist Magazine
“Adjoa Wiredu’s On Reflection: Moments, Flight And Nothing New is an incredibly timely collection holding up a window to our current society.”
Eric Otieno, Griot Mag
“[On Reflection: Moments, Flight and Nothing New] is an evocative debut collection… poems of varying lengths that collectively form an unassuming journey towards selfhood… extremely relatable and engaging…”
Aki Schilz, Writer, Poet and Director of The Literary Consultancy
“In [On Reflection: Moments, Flight and Nothing New], Wiredu observes the world and reports back with powerful grace.”
Elisabeth Gullach, (Un)Told Pages
“Reading [On Reflection: Moments, Flight and Nothing New] feels like taking a beautiful trip through Europe… There’s rawness and tough observations and sad destinies, but somehow Wiredu serves it with such beautiful language that it becomes poetic… On Reflection is a different approach discussing the intersections of being a part of [the] African diaspora in Europe…”
