About Us


If you ever experienced the beauty of words;

And even though it sometimes is hard to find the right ones, you cannot resist them;

If you want to write a little, read a little, and laugh a lot more;

Then ‘WAW’ is your bus-stop.

Words Are Work (WAW) is the place where writers and readers – you and I, connect with and impact the lives of each other. Send us an email if you are an aspiring wordsmith; a word artist looking to share your art (stories, poems, spoken word, word-photography, etc); or a reader in need of a ‘WAW’ time.

Hit the subscribe and social media ‘Share’ buttons … we will do whatever it takes to have you along on this ‘WAW’ ride.

Words are work, but we make them fun too! 🙂




Chisom Ojukwu


Chisom Ojukwu would normally prefer others did the talking about him, not because he’s humble and overwhelmingly decent but because it feels better to be talked about.
For the purposes of this however, Chisom is a Nigerian writer, engineer – even though COREN says he isn’t just yet and sky-diver (in his dreams). He did a three-year stint as a journalist for CAMPUSLIFE and won some ‘big deal’ awards so most think he is a journalist. In order not to fuss up any feathers, he admits to being a free-lance journalist. His articles have been published in The Nation, The Guardian and The Internet. He writes fiction, non-fiction, poetry and (slot in genre). Up until March 01, 2014, he had terribly procrastinated about blogging … and marriage. He is hoping that since he finally got around to doing one, the other might not be too far away – and he laughs, because it most likely is.
Chisom lives for high-powered intellectual discussions garnished with orgasmic little slices of laughter and sarcasm, in reverse order. He is passionate about teamwork and Nigeria.
