Animal Heart Press, a feminist and future-focused press which
publishes new, emerging and vibrant voices, seeks poems from Nigerian
poets for an anthology of poetry for release in March, 2020. We want to
hear the Nigerian narrative, untapped, uncut. We seek new, original
poems that make us laugh, cry, explore forms that are weird, reach for
our cores, bite us in the most subtle, yet remarkable way.


anthology of Nigerian poems will be edited by America’s Elisabeth
Ferrell Horan
(Editor-In-Chief, Animal Heart Press) and Nigeria’s
Adedayo Adeyemi Agarau (Assistant Editor- Animal Heart Press;
Contributing Editor for Poetry, Barren Magazine.)

This project
seeks to publish poems of emerging and established Nigerian poets. We
imagine a space where both new and established writers across the
country can share the same platform to reach out to this earth of salt,
to plunge their voices and make a statement.

Members of the
editorial team include Michael Akuchie, Nome Patrick Emeka, Agbaakin
Oluwatoyosi Jeremiah
, and Adebayo Kolawole Samuel.
