a period of rest or waiting before a further stage in a journey.

The Layover is a weekly email and podcast hosted & curated by Nneka Julia. Each episode features a new voice sharing an autobiographical story related to the theme of the month.

Each theme is presented at the start of the month and will be a one-word adjective, noun or a brief prompt for submitted stories.

Words like ‘home', 'love', 'hate', 'hope', 'jealousy',and 'ambition’ act as the springboard for each month's stories.

We believe that everyone has a story inside of them, and no one can tell your story better than you.
