Alvin Mingle


Biography of Alvin Mingle

My name is Alvin Albert Okoe Mingle, born and raised in Accra, Ghana. I schooled in Achimota Secondary School where I took my GCE O & A Levels before proceeding to the United Kingdom. I undertook my tertiary education at the Loughborough University in Leicestershire and remained in the United Kingdom for most of my adult life.

My love for literature and poetry was kindled from infancy from reading with my mother. Teachers such as 'Ringo' have had a particular impact in my life and my love for the arts. Updates


Look to the East

Amidst the Haze

An outstretched hand appears

I ponder, I wonder

Is this the help I need?

I saunter closer and closer

And grasp the faceless arm

Until I disappear

Not to reappear
