More about Tolulope Popoola

I’m a reader and writer just like you! I’ve been writing since I can remember, from when I was a little girl, about six years old. But I got teased in school by my friends who thought I was weird, so I stopped. However, I never lost my love for reading and I read anything I could get my hands on. I also continued to write in secret. I kept diaries and journals throughout my teen years, and writing was my therapy whenever I was upset.

Much later, I left school, went off to university and went down the path of Accounting and Finance in my career. One day in the middle of studying for professional accounting exams, I realised I was miserable! I started thinking about my long-term career path and I soon realised that I was not making use of my creative skills and doing the things I was passionate about. In 2006, I discovered blogging and my creativity and interest in writing was rekindled! From then on, I started writing short stories and flash fiction, and learning everything I could about the writing and publishing industry. I took a writing class, I bought lots of books on writing, subscribed to many writer’s groups and started attending literary events. I made a lot of mistakes and learned from them, until finally, in 2008 I quit my job as an accountant to become a full-time writer.

In 2009, I wrote my first novel (which was never published). In 2011, I finished working on my other novel titled Nothing Comes Close which was a spin-off from an online series titled “In My Dreams It Was Simpler”. I tried to get it published traditionally, but I faced rejection from mainstream publishers. Not because my work was bad, but because they thought it was “ethnic fiction” and therefore wasn’t commercially viable.

So I decided to do things my own way, and I founded Accomplish Press and The Creative Writing Academy. I published my novel successfully in 2012, and it got good reviews so I’m sure I did something right. In addition, I’ve also published three collections of flash fiction stories; Memoirs of a Lagos Wedding Planner, Fertile Imagination and Looking For Something. My writing has also opened many doors for me that I never imagined, including my stories being turned into short films. I’m now on a mission to help aspiring writers like you to write and publish their own novels too.


What my previous students and clients say:

“I signed up for 8-Week One to One coaching sessions with Tolulope Popoola towards the end of the year. It was the right thing to motivate me to get writing in the new year. The sessions were always on time and professional with practical tips to help my writing. I recommend coaching sessions with Tolulope to any writer who needs motivation and expertise for their writing.” ~ Sabine Adeyinka, Coaching Client

“I enrolled for Tolulope Popoola’s Creative Writing Course in November. My goal was to learn how to finish writing my novel so that I can publish it. I enjoyed the course, especially because even though it was a group class, Tolulope still gave each participant one-to-one attention. I learnt how to organise my writing better. Tolu is very knowledgeable about the creative writing process. If you do not know where and how to start your writing. I recommend you pass to through her program. ~ Amaka Ugbomah, Creative Writing Course Student

“I took part in the Creative Writing Course run by Tolulope Popoola. My goal was to reawaken my creative side, and that was definitely achieved. Tolulope was professional, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I liked the fact that she gave each participant one-to-one and hands-on attention. I will happily recommend the course to other writers too. ~ Ngozi Ojo, Creative Writing Course Student

“I worked with Tolulope Popoola on her Self-Publishing course to learn how to independently publish my book. Tolulope was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the course, it was a huge learning curve for me, and I’m happy that she used my book to demonstrate the publishing process, so it was learning by practice. The course was definitely worth every penny, and I will happily recommend Tolulope’s services to other aspiring authors – in fact I’ve already referred a friend.” – Amaka Azie, Publishing Client

Testimonial -

Tolu came highly recommended for her teaching style by a close friend. Signing up my daughter for the creative writing club four years ago has been a wise decision and investment. The classes creates an environment for the children to express themselves, be imaginative and creative. These classes with Tolu have really developed my daughter's writing ability and vocabulary, but most of all her confidence. I highly recommend Tolu expertise and cannot wait for her to bring out the best in my son as well.
