Please check your E-mail inbox or spam to confirm.

Submit your BEST 1-3 poems from Africa (living in Africa) or of African diasporas (one of the parents originated from Africa) to be included in BEST “NEW” AFRICAN POETS 2019 ANTHOLOGY. 
Poems of any topic, form and less than 40 lines are preferable but longer poems will be considered. Poems must be in any African indigenous language of Africa plus French, English, and Portuguese. Those in local African indigenous languages should be accompanied by a translation into French, or English or Portuguese.
“New” in form, style, poetry making, thinking, writing, living.
Whilst younger poets are given chance, they won’t be the only ones selected. There is higher flexibility in what us termed as African; you may be born on the continent, you may be staying on the continent yet from another continent (afrocentric), you may also be a first descendent of African parents but staying in the diasporas.
Deadline for entries is 15 October, 2019
Entries should be in one word doc, include also your contact information, country of stay or country of origin and a bio note of not more than 100 words.
